Hi Folks,

I have two multiflorals in bloom right now.
First one is a disappointment for me because l suspected a species. For me the primary between kolopankingii and philippinense should look like this. What do you think?

Second one was a surprise. Looks like much gigantifolium in there, perhaps x supardii. Second that or other suggestion?

The second does look like a Paph. Memoria Heinz Rengers. The Temptation is a keeper IMHO.
I bought a cross from Orchidinn, Paph. Memoria Heinz Rengers x sanderianum hoping for a CH Dancer looking flower. Its large enough but not bloomed

I can only second SlipperKing on both accounts:
1) The Temptation is indeed, what it says it is (to paraphrase Boris J: "Temptation by name, Temptation by nature"! 😉). Very nice colouring, especially of pouch and petals; excellent stance; and perfect separation between flowers!
2) The second flower clearly shows influence from gigantifolium (e.g. the bright to whitish colouring of the ovary) and supardii (the anarcho-clownish twists of the petals)!

Thanks a lot for your assessments! I noticed a strong smell. can someone tell me if it comes from kolopankingii? I wouldnt described it as fragrance...
If anybody in Europe is intrested in the plants, PM me. I can only keep space for species, although they are very nice and i like them.
