These are both made with Paph henryanum f. christae x Paph Charlesworth f. bromilowae. In previous years these have bloom lighter than the typical form and in August/September. This year they bloomed darker and much earlier. The warm weather is really doing a number on the blooming cycles around here.

It nice to see them bloom before I find a new home for them. Space it tight, and I just divide my typical Doll's Kobold. Doll's Kobolds will be taking up too much space once winter comes.

Interesting coloration, with the pink pouch still coming through strong from a christae form of henryanum.

I am not familiar with fm bromilowae? Is it lighter in color than normal charlesworthii? Any pics of the parents?
 
I love this hybrid. Yours look just like two of my seedlings made with type parents.
Mine last bloomed in the fall of 2018. A couple of them are in sheath again. I thought they would bloom sooner, but no.
Charlesworthii and its primary really hate me. lol

I am not familiar with the form either. I am not completely sure about the spelling just what's on the tags. I have not found much about the form but I know it is a much lighter form of charlesworthii. The picture I saw on the vendor's site (Lucky Girl, which closed a few years ago) was a tawny light tan color.

Maybe we can trade. You can share your Parvi blooming magic, and I will share my Doll's Kobold blooming. These bloom easily each year for me. Those pesky parvis are the slow growers

Nothing to offer in trade. If you’re going to sell/ship, I’d be interested in details!

Hi Leslie
There may be more to this but I believe “ f. bromilowae” is a synonym for alba/album. I’ve have a few myself and some are marked album and some bromilowae.
