This one has a weird "horn" on it's pouch, and has two inflorescences coming from the same growth:




This one, from another vendor, has a tag that reads:
Paph. Walnut Valley (moquettianum ‘Pine Knot’ x Greyi album)

This has been a nice cross! As (glaucophyllum X Greyi), would be called Ruby Charles. RHS did right to finally accept moquettianum as a parent for registration. Maybe, if I have time, I'll compile a list of all the glauco (v moq)crosses reregistered with moq as a parent. Someone want to beat me to it??? ;)

Nice, actually that's an under-statement, flowers. Who is the vendor on the 2nd one. I need one! Does that mean moquettianum is now officially separate from glaucophyllum?

Eric, the first came from Summerfield Orchids, now out of business. The second came from Carter and Holmes. I've had it for about a year, but they still may have some. Good luck.
