David, I agree that the goal of Fritz Schomburg from the beginning was the production of a big, round, red to purplish flower and the cross with a top tetraploid besseae gets as close to the ideal as possible. I don’t think there has been a better triploid than what you are showing. I have only seen the picture of the supposed tetraploid FS that Orchids Limited photographed this year as compared to the triploid FS that we both have. I don’t know if I will be fortunate enough to grow orchids long enough to be able to grow/bloom one of these tetraploids so for now, the plant you are showing is the pinnacle.

Terry, agreed. I haven’t seen better.
I have a compot of what is supposed to be a sibbing of two tetraploid Lovely Lynne clones. These may rival this plant if they are what they say they are.
I would expect the Fischer’s to be selling seedlings from their tetraploid Fritz very soon. I’d love a seedling of either the cross to a tetraploid Jason Fischer or back to robs choice. A tetraploid Robert Jan Quene would be fun.

I started to write "good luck, David" and with that plant you don't NEED luck. The quality of that plant speaks for itself.

I see that your lovely magnolia is budding up again. I love that particular variety and
can't find it anywhere so far.
