And Merry Christmas!

This plant came in a group from Clark G when he downside some plants. There was a group of these sibling seedlings, and I shared a number with co-workers, kept 2 or 3. I’d love to cross it with some things but being 3N it’s the end of the road in that respect 7C5A4795-60D3-4635-8032-FF511C83FF84.jpeg

Charles, what is you preference for a cross? I have several spiking now and several
in bloom. I can also share some divisions with you in trade.

Well I have the Alba, a Seymour tower coming into spike again and this one, so thought about making something ‘lighter’ with the Alba. I don’t have anything specific in mind, just thought to try something out. If you would like some Alba pollen to try something, I think there is another bud coming on the other spike. I’m thinking about selfing this to have some seedlings
Thoughts?

I'm not "into" breeding. Nor even into blooming for show. I'm into the peace and quiet
of taking care of my orchids in my gh. Just a suggestion, visit Sam Tsui's website for
a very colorful longifolium...huge plants and very, very nice. The name of the
plant is longifolium x sib ('Woodstream' AM/AOS x 'Domenica' HCC/AOS

I practically usually almost ignore some of my plants, I’ll bet they are attention starved.

Opening on Valentine’s Day! I no longer send valentines romantic wishes as the day has never worked out for me. But when this is fully open it will have a great ‘Valentine’s color’ 👍

I think it was fully open yesterday, but there was even less light when I was home last night.
There is a little break just left of the opening, but it’s nice color and shape. The red almost has a tiny tint of blue to it 2CE078FE-6B3E-41A2-A1E8-1DE3A99DDAE7.jpeg68D1731F-DF69-414C-8E3D-311EC27F8689.jpeg04340E86-AA9F-45D9-997C-8ACF659106D9.jpeg
