The pattern of the thick green veining in the dorsal is interesting. Is the lower petal supposed to split like that? I thought they were usually fused together.

Beautiful! It has a good twist of the petals. Will be interesting if the split synsepalum will carry on next blooming.

We shall see.
It has 2 more buds. I suspect that this is its first bloom.

That's a fancy name 😂
I have 2 books on paphs and Paphs philippinense album is not mentioned so maybe your guess is right.

ok just to start some self correction... forget that note above... ;-)

i see 2 albinistic phillies.. in various shades of acceptance..

Forma Alboflavum (from Guido's most recent tome) and var. compactum aureoviride ... that second one was the one i was thinking... laevigatum was an old synonym for phil...

@ORD may have some good things to help us with here... btw - my friend Mr Google turned up this conversation at the AOS about an awarded plant back in 2016

Thank you for your explanations. I wonder why the synsepalum is split.
