Rudolf, this ‘Angel Wings’ is in fact from Hilmar that I got at Redlands 2019 when he was there. So yours and mine are siblings. But sorry to hear yours is sulking. They tend to do that lol.
How funny, two siblings divided by the great pond. This happens in real life with plants as well as with human beings.......... So yours and mine are siblings......
Leslie, let me relativise it to.....she's been growing very slowly but grows. But I won't complain because I purchased it by an ebay auction as a young plant for a more than reasonable prize..........But sorry to hear yours is sulking. They tend to do that lol.
It is quite interesting that these colour forms breed like albas where the warts are independently inherited while the rest of the floral anthocyanins in the rest of the flowers are repressed in hybridization (meaning no reds show in floral parts when bred to alba flowers in subsequent generations).But Leslie let us clear the name. Paph. wolterianum is a synonym of appletonianum. The real greenish forma of appletonianum has the name forma immaculatum and was described officially
Paphiopedilum appletonianum f. immaculatum (Braem) Braem, Orchidées Cult. Protect.: 36 (1998).
All other names are only trade names, like album, viride, virescens or so.
The colorform has no spots on the petals or other parts of the flower and a greenish spike.
So yours has no specific name.
Beside these greenish appletonianum with spots you can find other with greenish flower without spots but with brownish spike
