    Yet another seedling which turned out to be a stupid hybrid instead of the micranthum it was supposed to be! But what should I call it? It's much yellower in reality.

    Not Armeni White. Probably complex. Can you show from the side?

    OMG...my most heartfelt commiserations! With these plants, you must have waited for ages - and then it turns out to be not exactly, what you excpected :eek::confused::mad::mad:

    Although, without the blemish on the pouch, it seems to be a most beautifull hybrid - it is not micrantum. And that's what matters, if you expected it to be! I would have been livid, if after waiting for 7 months (not to speak of the time spent cultivating it), my malipoense had turned out to be something else. Well, if I was the vendor, I would praise myself a lucky man, if being outside your reach! ;)

    Kind regards - and loads of empathy!

    This kind of mix up is why I quit growing Paphs. I don't blame
    you for being pissed, Mike. It's a pretty Paph., but that does't
    make up for not getting what you paid for.

    Think I'll stick with Paph. Wossner China Moon.The staminode shows reticulations that indicate hangianum influence. Neither micranthum or armeniacum have those markings.

    Not counting that Mike's plant is a multi generation complex hybrid, I think the chance for it to be Fumi Delight's is higher than that is a Wossner China Moon .
    There are these Wossner China Moon & Fumi's Delight side by side in Sunset valley pictures.
    http://picdeer.org/place/682924855237433 (scroll down , middle of the page)
    The thing is most if not all of the Wossner China Moon flowers have larger petals in proportion to the pouch (this trait is from hangianum parent)
