Any ideas what this pleione might be?

Hello Maggi, there are so many similar ones you could call it any name. It looks like forrestii in the parentage.

So hard to identify hybrids. I agree that clearly forrestii is in there somewhere. From the twisted top petal and pink colouration I would guess x barbarae could be another parent or at least in the mix somewhere. But impossible to be sure.

Hi,
my first thought was Pleione Krakatoa (yunnanensis x forrestii), but not certain.

A bit windswept, but quite beautiful nonetheless! My guess would be the same as Paul's.
Do you know if it's a natural or man-made hybrid?

It always helps if one knows where the plant was purchased.

Could it be one of these Anthura unnamed, unrecorded hybrids ?

Almost certainly, Luc - the cluster of bulbs in the pot is characteristic.
