I've delibrately purchase these 2 paphs to see if what, if any, reverse cross has on the growth rate and flower quality.

On the left is roth x hangianum and on the right is hangianum x roth. The LS on both plants are roughly the same, although the hang x roth is in a bigger pot.

I will grow them side by side under the same condition. I think it'd be interesting to see the difference in growth rate and difference in flower size / count / fragrance.

cool experiment. The one on the right has more hangianum like leaves too because it is wavy. hangianum have somewhat wavy leaves right?

for some reason your roth x hangianum (one on left) has a larger leaf span than mine, I didn't get mine long ago and its from the same vendor. Mine has more leaves though I think, just shorter leaves on my plant.

Wow, what a great way to make some people jealous! I've always thought that the difference between which parent is pollen/pod would make a difference. But I don't think there's a lot of comparison research.

Good excuse to buy two plants! I may have to use this reasoning when attempting to explain my credit card purchases for the month.

Fren, I got the one from Cloud's months ago.. it's now growing it's 7th leaf, a little bit ahead of the paramount one. re: hangianums have wavy leaves.. well, i am not sure. i have seen some with wavy leaves and some with almost straight leaves.

Lance, I don't think these two plants share the same parents. There's no info on the parent clone on the tags, but I think (!) one plant comes from europe whereas the other plant comes from asia. (it's only my guess, based on the vendors' purchase habits). so this little experiment is not as "scientific" as I wish it could be.

We should be able to & let's face it we do, because we're seeing them for sale on a regular basis.
