    I couldn’t resist posting this tonight. It’s just opening and if you have walkers you know how that is. Dorsal up... dorsal reflexed... dorsal up... and so on. This is a pretty nice flower and I’m looking forward to making a cross with it.

    Nice!

    Most walkerianas now are tetraplouds, so the hope is your other parent is not a diploid. Otherwise F1 triploids, though great flowers, will end the line.

    Good to know... I’ve got 70 or so. I guess I should try to figure out what’s what. I could post a list of my divisions if anyone might know some walker clone history.

    Most likely any new seed based walkerianas from 2005 onwards (from US nurseries like H&R, Miranda or Brazil) are from tetraploid lines. And tetraploids have the thick substance and full petals that will not curl on aging.

    But never hurts to ask lol.

    Wow great collection. You must let us know your cultural tips. I have no success with them under lights.

    I might suggest you ask Francisco Mirando or Roy T at H&R of some these plants in the list (other than the 4n ones you know). Benjamin Olivieros in Hawaii will know as well I am sure. Wakayama Orchids will also know for the Japanese cultivars. Good luck.

    I'd love to see photos of all those walkers in your collection. That's
    a very impressive group.

    Thanks everyone for the kind comments. I bought a leftover walker from a vendor as they were packing up to go... biggest orchid mistake I ever made. I was immediately hooked by the beauty and the scent of the flower. The rest is history.

    So if the war came, and you had to pack up and leave tomorrow with a small suitcase. Which 2 or 3 could you not leave behind?
