That is a beauty. Just what I expected it to look like. I have the reverse cross (Waunakee Sunset X Twilight). I wonder if mine is labeled wrong or if he really did both.

Thanks for sharing.

Eric, the ones I started with were a bit rough and they didn't get going well. I think some fresh plants may be better. I have 2 survivors in S/H and there seems to be improvement. I put a Calurum in S/H at the same time. The container is rapidly filling with roots from a 2 lead plant with one root. Might post a pic of it. There is still hope but the besseae plants and hybrids are hard to get here and are very expensive for the size of plant against Paph seedlings or other Phrags.

Need to add to last post -

After seeing your wonderful flower yesterday - you revived my passion for my phrags - when i saw it it I thought i've got one of those I think - Ive spent the morning with my plants something I haven't done for a while - when we shifted here 10mths ago - plants have been struggling - but i realise i too have ,because ive not been to any meetings - ( all are a day's trip away )
your flower restarted me Ive got to get up to date with the new names .too
so thankyou I too now am excited about new flowers .
