Favorite Slipper Orchid: Slipper species
Default Confused about species labels

Forty years ago I had a small collection of species paphs. Then life got in the way. Now that I am retired, I thought I might develop a small collection again. In looking at what is available for purchase I see something like the following:
Paph species for sale:

Paph. species name (Super Yellow X Tall Boy) These names I made up.


If they are selling a plant as a species, what does "Super Yellow X Tall Boy" mean? This does not seem to be a hybrid, and if so, is it a true species? If I want to collect "true species", what should I look for? I don't remember this forty years ago, or perhaps my mind is slipping.

In any case, I look forward to learning again about these marvelous plants.
