I've just received some new bessae crosses originating from OZ and was wondering if anybody has flowered any of the following crosses or seen pictures of some that have flowered :

- Smoking x Colossal
- Pucker x Colossal
- BleedingHeart x Colossal
- Smoking x Heaven

Yes, I think it should be Smokin' x Haven though. :)

I've seen photos of all except Pucker x Colossal. And flowered several Smokin' x Colossal and x Haven.

I can post some pics tomorrow, maybe. You might also do a search here for Smokin' and Colossal and you might turn some photos up. Actually, I google'd and Stephen's site came up - slipperorchids.info.

Here's a couple http://images.google.com/images?client=safari&rls=en&q=besseae smokin&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wi

I like some of the new OZ crosses, they tend to have very wide petals and very thick substance. Some can be a little TOO wide for some people's taste even!

AHH! So your the one who outbid me on these Phrag. besseae... :)

Good luck growing them... are they in good shape and previously bloomed like JC said? I am recieving an OZ cultivar from him soon... and Orchid Zone has TOO many good forms of Phrag. besseae... =)

I have bloomed 20 of the smokin x haven cross, I believe. Have to check the tags. All were very nice. Two were spectacular. Enjoy!

Email the seller, I think he's selling them for about $25 a piece. You should be able to get these plants for much less than $50 bucks if you look around. And I still don't think that color's going to be guaranteed. Because it is not a particular cross made with a flavum besseae, it could very well be cultural.

Oh, and all's fair in love and war, Eric...;)
