My guess is Leeanum (insigne x spicerianum) on top, and Lathamianum (villosum x spicerianum) on the bottom......Eric

wow! thank you so much peeps. that's wonderful, i'm gonna go looking for care info for them now.

do you guys know what's the best leaf colour i'm looking for? i've also noticed the leaves are more like those of a hanging plant....rather than upright leaves.....do you think that's the correct behavious or i'm doing something wrong?

thanks again for all the help!

I'm interested to know what the experts think of that too. I have a spicerianum hybrid that has pretty floppy leaves and I was wondering if it's cultural...?

Nice paphs Wahaj!

It's the nature of the beast. spiceri, insigne have the floppy growth habit. It passes on in the hybrids
