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.

Thanks all. Doll's Kobold is an adorable hybrid. I will post my type Doll's Kobold when it opens. hopefully the flowers will overlap.

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.

I wish I thought to grab a screen capture and the description of the cross. I do that now so I can refer back to the details once the plants bloom.

My regular Doll's Kobold is blooming. The flower is smaller than normal but still adorable.

The first flowers in this thread are nice and have an attracting colouration but the colouration of the last one is great and made my day. 👍
