This is a very old crossing and I think one parent will be obvious but what is the other parent is the question.

I cross between Paph. vilosum var. boxali with callosum (Indra) or with insigne (Nitens). I still go with Paph. Indra (x callosum).

Cross with Paph. Harisianum (villosum x barbatum) = paph. Conspicuum.


Ramon:)

Bingo!! P. Conspicuum.....Harrisianum x villosum.
First registered in 1888. I have seen t2 different clones of this here. One much darker than this one. Both very nice and grow like weeds. If all my Paphs grew as fast it would be fantastic.

Well done Ramon.

Barbatum??? Really? HUH -- some hybrids do suprise me in how they take after their parents.

It's a nice looking flower.
