Paphs are grown from seed, so I would think that each grex would be different, but you would not know until they actually bloomed. I have a feeling that if someone wanted a specific color you'd have to bloom out a few flasks. I really think that growers who are looking for the "perfect" plant, usually for shows, often buy many.

True to a certain extent, but anitum for a ling time was thought to be a darker form of paph aductum. Paph anitum has very dark flowers. They are just not a plant you can find many of. I am blessed with one plant in my collection which has not bloomed that is flowering size. The flask I reserved from Sam Tsui did not have good germination rates. Even the foilage is darker than aductum and has almost a blue hue. It also requires less light than aductum. Hopefully I will get a flower this year as the new fan is really starting to develop nicely.

Epidendrum melanoporphyreum is known as the black Epidendrum. it has dark-purple/black sepals, petals and lip with incredible green and white contrasts. I'm not actually sure who, if anyone/ is selling any at the moment.
