This is the first bloom of a cross I made (Paph Memoria Matthew P Dewitt x Paph Lefty Kei). Cool but surprising outcome... can’t wait to see some more blooms. Curious to see how much variation there might be in the cross.
Hmm, very strange outcome.
Isn't Paph. Memoria Matthew P Dewitt a cross of a multi-hybrid with P. primulinum?
Isn't Paph. Lefty Kei another multi-flowering-hybrid?

If the parents above are right, the flower on your pic doesn't fit to that parentage. The flower is of a cross within the section Paphiopedilum like Paph. barbigerum with a Complex-Hybrid for example.

Lefty Kei = sanderianum x William Ambler, so sanderianum, rothschildianum & praestans or wilhelminiae are 50% of the cross.

My guess this plant had labels mixed up at some point. Too bad, would be a nice combo.
