The colors are so rich! It also looks compact for a philippenense. Is that accurate?

I am a newbie to these multiflorals and I am blown away at how striking they are. Beautiful.

It's gorgeous!

And you are right about the 'x sib' consideration, when it comes to Sam...he seems to tend to use it when he crosses a species to itself, be the clones siblings or not? Or am I wrong here?

Very nice. I like “Alfords”! I have the same cross from Sam, about 2 years old. Just got rot! It has great roots and 4” start and another bud starting. I removed the outer leaves on at a time until getting the the center of the plant and it was rotted. Removed all tissue sprayed with Physan and Dragons Blood. Currently I have a healthy looking 4” plant with great roots. Maybe I caught it before it spread! Duck

Yes, it is probably the case, Guidal. I explained Sam the difference between sibling cross and outcross between conspecifics at one point.
Duck, I hope yours will recover!

Love the twist!
The light tips of the petals look unusual to me, mine were always blackish...
