First flower open on my new primary hybrid Paph. Predacious (adductum x glanduliferum). I acquired this orchid fairly recently (a few weeks ago) in low bud. I personally think it is really elegant.

This hybrid was made popular back in the 80s I believe by the Orchid Zone when they flooded the market with it. I haven't seen it since, nice find. Beautiful.

Indeed, very elegant because it looks more like P. adductum than P. glanduliferum (P. praestans) or a hybrid in between both......just my thoughts.

Thank you very much. I am very pleased with how it has turned out. Perhaps adductum was the pod parent?
