Yours is a lovely one, and always memorable as your 'first'.

Don't worry, the show schedule will be back later in year or next year. You can assess the flower this year to see if it has improved over last year so that it can push for an upgrade to an AM next year. Usually if there is improvement in size, color, substance and more flowers (they can have 3 flowers), an upgrade is within reason. Then cut the spike off after a week of enjoying and let the plant grow stronger for the following show season.

And yes I do plan to go to the Paph forum, hopefully it will be in Hawaii next year! And perhaps get to meet some of you on here!
Thanks for the advice. I do have a spike starting, yay!! I hope you are kidding about Hawaii. See you in DC.

I'm not kidding regarding Hawaii, home of many great MF and species paths! And cattleya species too. I'm thinking one bird, two stones lol.

Though the name 'Dumbo' is strange for one of the 3 Musqueteers (lol).....this is a damn nice flower. Not to forget the other ones. Great !

Wonderful display - but how do you distinguish between the typical form and fma vinicolor, when they both have so coloured and saturated pouches?

And where on earth have you stuck the last, missing colour form: fma. semialbum? 😁

Golly! Beautiful, all! In the earlier photo, I love those snakey stems rising out of the beautiful forest of green.

The difference between vini and regular is the depth of pouch darkness (more deep purple red) plus dark tessellations on leaves, especially the leave margins and undersides.

I have not a semi album yet lol but I saw this picture on the web. See what makes it a semi?

Yes, I know...my "question" was of a more rhetoricall nature...like a hyperbole in honour of both excellent clones!

I would go in search for the missing anthocyanin of the staminodal area, if I were responsible for a makeover to turn this beauty into the typical form!

Lo, and behold! I feel the Stendahl syndrome coming on! 🤯

Gorgeous display, Leslie... and nice barbigerum var. lockianum to the very left!

Wow Stendahl syndrome on my display is indeed an honor!

Actually that lockie is the coccineum masquerading as a stand-in.
