Very nice! Looks like a fresh tasty lime. For me the dots at the base are not a problem. They make this flower so individual!
I agree. I think the freckles are rather cute.

It’s possible that if you self it you could produce the odd true alba!

Yes indeed you are right David. Both parents of this one are half albums. So technically can get up to 50% albums!

Leslie, I was scrolling through your update photos for minutes and I'm deeply impressed of so much beauty. I like such lime green flowers very much therefore your Paph. exul '7+3 freckles' leaves me speechless though the flower is the smaller one. 👌 👌

Those look great! What conditions are you growing them under? Mine seem happy but I can’t get them to bloom.

They grow hot... 33C in summers and 22C nights in winter... medium bright light 1800 fc.

I have several multi-growth plants (normal color) and have only bloomed one of them in the last 5 or more years. I have them in the cooler area of the greenhouse. I think I'll move them to where the polyantha species/hybrids are. They currently grow with charlesworthii, gratrixianum, hirsutissumum, etc.

BRRRRRR too cold for them.

Stick them with the warm phals section with almost cattleya light. You might be surprised with many blooms after.

Good luck!

Today they look almost same shape especially the dorsal waves:

Staminodes also look the same.

Ok well I lied! Turns out one of my 10 growth plants has a single spike emerging. Guess the spot I had them in wasn't too cold. 😃
