Congrats! Not an easy species to grow, much less bloom. Well done!

Flowers a bit wonky presentation (again, don't move while opening) with wavy dorsal sepals (maybe due to dryness, seen with the leaves a bit dehydrated), but the twisting petals are amazing.

I would have been exited too if I bloomed a multifloral Paph for the very first time and it would be such a beauty. Good job and congrats!

Beautiful parishii!

Werner,
Yours is not parishii but a hybrid. Probably Robinianum.

Like SK, I also suspected it might be Robinianum, but I had confirmation that there is a race of parishiis that have wide petals like these. So I want one lol.

I also think that is is a Robinianum. All the reddish hues on the flowers are from Paph lowii, I think.
