First flowering seedling from Sam Tsui breeding. Golden Boy is from MM x Rex I believe and Giant Wings is TON of course. I am very happy with the outcome. Nice colour and form and the petal stance is great. Not an enormous flower (25 cm NS) but the plant is small, so I expect the flowers to get significantly bigger on a larger plant. I think it is a keeper.

loverly and has me scanning Sam's site (haven't ordered anything for 3 months... maybe its time ;-) )

any chance this is actually the 'gold dynasty x giant wings' grex? (PAS0731) (he may just be sold out of the cross you have)

It is definitely Golden Boy X Giant Wings. Here is Sam's description of this cross. It must have sold out. It was a few years ago now. I have not been able to find any flowering examples of this cross on the internet, so maybe there wasn't a large number or I am one of the first to flower it.

PAS0375 Paph. rothschildianum x sib ('Golden Boy' AM/AOS x 'Giant Wings' 20-24cm ls $50.00 GM/WOC) Golden Boy is bred from Rex x MM. It has very dark strips over creamy white backgound. Giant Wings is one of the best from Val x MM in Japan. It has very dark color and great form.

Nice deep colour
 
thanx lots of other giant wings crosses with plants having MM in their background...

crap shoot on the next line breeding :) either way they will likely be nice

For a while there, Sam was breeding a lot with Giant Wings. This is the first roth with Giant Wings as a parent I have flowered. I bought the flask 'Giant Wings'x ''Canadian Club'' and a few seedlings of the TON cross "Black Eagle'' x 'Giant Wings'. Both of which should be great.

Sam doesn't seem to understand what a sib cross is. He often puts sib when they are not.

Nicely done David beautiful markings on this one.
I recently purchased the ' Black Eagle ' x 'Giant Wings' as well , cross #PAS00663 from Sam. Hoping for the same, maybe darker.

Thanks Rick. How far off is your Black Eagle ' x 'Giant Wings' from flowering? I have one plant that may flower in 2 years. I am hoping for darker flowers on that one.
 
A single fan at NS of 30 inches, of course I paid for the size too. Not working as hard as you!

That plant is amazing Rick. I dare say you will be flowering yours first. I look forward to seeing how yours turns out. I had to grow mine from very small seedlings. I bought 5. One is NFS, two are a lot further back and the last two have barely progressed.
