This is Paph Wossner Butterfly
malipoense x vietnamense

A first-time bloomer, with a strong raspberry fragrance. I'm not wild about the dorsal, but it's that not unusual for a malipoense cross. Certainly a very large flower.

:clap: The color is quite pretty. I'm not crazy about the dorsal either BUT ....
I'm a believer in better 2nd time blooms, therefore it's a KEEPER!:wink::wink::wink:

Very nice one Rick. May I ask how big the flower is? And if it's not too much to ask, a whole plant pic! HEhe

Here's the entire plant. Natural spread is 12 cm, which would be large even for a malipoense. The lip is 4 cm wide.

Wow! I have seen a few of these in bloom and I have to say yours is the best! I have two seedlings I hope they bloom as nice as this. Imagine crossing this to a micranthum or an armeniacum!
