Only the second time I have flowered this. The first time was five years ago with one flower. It is a very slow grower. Orchid Zone breeding. The plant is very compact. The petals are 26 cm in length.


Paph Oberhausens Rubin (sanderianum 'Ray' x wilhelminiae 'Black Magic')

Love the twisting petals from the sanderianum.

Seems like multflorals take 3 or more years to mature their growths.

It is worth waiting! Marvelous twist of the petals!

That is spectacular, just a shame that some of these hybrids are so slow growing

Gorgeous, David! That wilhelminea really seems to work its dark art on the sanderianum, but with such an outcome, who would take it to trial! 👻
And by the way, that plant looks so healthy and wellgrown, Oh, Thou, Paph-conjurer of the Southern hemisphere! 😉

Agreed, the petals are approaching perfection. Bloom it with 4 and get it awarded :)
Four flowers is a big ask with this plant. I will be rapt if I can get three. Not sure about award quality. The dorsal is not great (a bit wavy) and the pouch is all sanderianum. It has good colour and the petals are excellent.

Thanks Jens. I have been growing this plant since 2007, and this is only the second time I have flowered it. So I don't feel like I am growing it that well. :)

funny how critical we can be of our own stuff.... those petals and the stance are enough to make me smile... good luck on your continued growing...

You have only flowered it twice in 13 years but this is due to the very deliberate growth in your plant's case, not due to poor culture. Congratulations on re-flowering: I think it was worth waiting for!
