Four flowers open on Phal. parishii today. The lips are very wiggly. When the first one opened I thought I had damaged it but they all dangle.

Very nice new thread, Kathy!! I managed to take a few pictures, but have to work them up, later.
I love the "maybe" x, the blooms are very pretty! Cute Phal parishii!

Beautiful Kathy! I love the Diacrium x Epi cross (maybe). Is it a large plant?

Good looking plants Kathy, I too am drawn to '(maybe)'. I don't remember the history of this plant so wondering why you are unsure or suspicious of the name.

Thanks, once again to Todd, Bree and Ken for researching the Paph. Really appreciate it. I tip my hat to you.

Well the maybe is because the tag says Diacrium bicornutum x Epi. stamfordianum but I've repotted it at least once and my photos have this flower as Dial. Snowflake x Enc. tampense. I guess they are a bit different (and I guess I like spots!). You can see my confusion! So it probably is Diacrium bicornutum x Epi. stamfordianum which has a new name Epiarthron Kevin Mark Ragbir according to the RHS. The plant looks like a small dendrobium or epi with a height of 12".

Here is the Dial. Snowflake x Enc. tampense.

Janice, what is the history or where did you get this plant? I think, as Todd mentioned, there could be stonei in the makeup because of the light colored dorsal sepal of yours. Here is a stonei to show whitish dorsal sepal.

Kathy, look at plant 22 and 24. I think the spots would be influenced by stamfordianum.

sandnsea- i still think its a Haynaldianum x stonei which is Eva Weigner. The red pouch, light top petal with the pink blush in it and the straight long red side petals. Everything else just looks slightly wrong. Most similar crossings have the twisted side petals and darker top petal, not like yours.
Anyway enough of this i supose. hehe!
Anyone have another paph to research. ha!
Im getting this anyone know anything about ern kettle?
There were lots of them with slightly different flower colours, i choose this spotted one. So all the crossing produces similar but not the same flowers? Why would the seller want to do that if not to improve the flower. Guess they think they are??

Bree, in a nut shell -
the breeder makes the cross based on choice parents and having some knowledge of traits which might be passed on in a good way to the progeny, waits out the years until the seedlings bloom ( as different as the children in a family). He picks the ones with the best blooms, registers them and sells them at a premium prize labeled properly to hobbyists.
(But, going to a local nursery - it can be fun to actually pick several seedlings from the same cross to see what they turn out to be.)
A big grower takes the rest of the batch and if they are nice, sells them usually unlabeled cheaply to Big Box stores.


Btw, the one you just posted - I think it is cute, I like it!

Thanks for the link, Ken. Stonei is a knockout. A friend gave me the paph, never knew the name.
Bree, thanks for your help!
