    Possibly Paph Honey (philippinense x primulinum), but this is a variable hybrid and there are several similar ones so it may not be possible to be sure.

    I agree! Definitely a cochlo hybrid, but there's no way to be absolutely sure. Do you like it? Then does it really make a difference? You name it whatever you like!:clap:

    Could be Honey. But one of the other Cochio's could be a parent. Since they are all similar, their hybrids tend to be similar, also.
