    Hello, I'm trying to explore these two plants since there is some confusion of them. From what I can tell the plant I am growing is P. 'Sethos' (see pictures here )
    Anyway, if you think you are growing P. 'Weser' I would be interested in seeing pictures of the plant and close up of the flowers if you have any.
    Please note, if you have the picture but no way to post it. Feel free to email it to me at adnedarn@comcast.net and I'll host it for you.
    Thanks,
    Andrew

    Hi!

    Look at this one, its a "P. x Weser":

    Why did I put the "P. x Weser" in quotation marks? P. x Weser and P. x Sethos are cultivars made years ago. The plants in culture today are the same cross (same parents) but are not selected clones like the original plants.

    Jan, thanks for the information and the picture. Your flower looks similar to mine as the white part is in a starish kinda shape. I think what I want to see, is a flower of this cross that instead of having a star white spot.... has a solitary white streak down the central lower lobe. Please view this page put together by Pingman. P. 'Weser' / P. 'Sethos' page I think from that you can see what clone I am searching for.
    Thanks,
    Andrew

    Yes, but as I said: The photos show the both cultivars. We have similar plants, but not with those those genes. Our plants come from different nurseries and have the same parents, but are not the selected clones from A. Slack who registered the cultivar names. Search in this forum and you will find a thread regarding this topic.

    O.K. I've looked up and read the conversations in this forum... What we are saying is that we are growing P. moranensis x ehlersiae and even if we have a plant that looks like what we know of P. 'Sethos' or P. 'Weser' we are not calling them that because we have no way to tell that they are the exact genes of the original plants?
    Thanks for the information and discussion.

    Yes and it looks rather similar, but the selected clones had special flower colors etc.

    Uh, so far, genetic fingerprinting does not determine a "cultivar", unless said "genetic fingerprint" is included in the original description of that particular cultivar. Only matching the cultivar description and standard determines if said plant can be identified as to a particular cultivar.

    I think Joe is correct, and I wish I could remember the conversation on the cp listserve on this, but Jan Schlauer said it pretty well to un-confuse the bulk of us.
