I have a paph hsinying x charlesworthii. It was gifted to me. I cannot find any info about it. I have had it for about a year and now has a bloom. There is no name after Hsinying on the tag. Any info would be welcome

TIA

There appears to be several "charlesworthii" types, probably all grown the same way.

I have a Hsinying cross http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/fp.php?pid=7539683 and http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/fp.php?pid=9048836 If the tag says it is Hsinying then there is no addition to that name. They are warm growing and easy to bloom. Indirect light. Paphs don't like old bark so make sure you repot every couple of years. I let mine dry slightly between waterings or make sure the the bark is very new if watering frequently. I think the charlesworthii parent lends a strapier, thinner leaf to the plant. My cross has more compact, wider leaves.

Ah! Thanks for the repotting suggestion! It was something I was going to ask Bree (the Paph queen) about.

I actually was not knowledgeable about this until a few years ago when one of my Paphs won an award. The AOS judge held up the plant and gave this dissertation about how my plant looked so great because I had it in fresh medium and that was important with Paphs.

This plant sits in a spot when it's outside, which is most of the year, that gets dappled morning sun and filtered sun the rest of the day. I have not re-potted yet, but can tell it will need to be redone after this bloom. Laura, you said "If the tag says it is Hsinying then there is no addition to that name." Yet I cannot find a pic of just Paph Hsinying. Oh well, just have to wait for the flower to open

Hsinying is common in alot of cross Paphs, the maudie types. Theres Hsinying citron, web, carlos, ruby, gold, alien franz, glory, web, ruby web. Does it have any other name after the Hsinying?

I see what you mean, Ted. It sounds like something got lost name-wise on that tag. There are two most common ones used for hybridizing. One that I know is citron. I couldn't recall the name of the other but remembered it started with "m" so I Googled and up popped majakun. That's the other common one. No way to know without DNA testing for sure, I guess. :)

Well, when it blooms I'll post a photo and maybe it will become obvious to someone. The bud keeps getting redder...we shall see.

Here is the promised pic. It's rounder, if you will, fuller? than most paphs I have seen. Looks really good
