This big fat pink thing is one of my favorite primary hybrids consistently blooming twice a year. Flowers are huge, long lasting, fragrant and exhibit the best characteristics of both parents.The true pink color is even more saturated than these photos show due to back lighting. Everyone should have at least one.CF2E2CA3-8FBA-4179-8F1B-F4F6278745D7.jpegA254B9E9-FF0C-47DB-83B9-A05CCEF22FA3.jpeg

I also like this primary hybrid. How long have you had it and do you know the parents used in breeding?

I would find room for this in my greenhouse; which says a lot coming from a Paph/Phrag addict with limited greenhouse space.

Same exact parents as mine, purchased from Orchids Limited, so no wonder they look similar.

Acquired mine from Cal Orchid. I read your previous comments on parentage with interest. A belated thank you for that research post.
