    I've had it since I started growing orchids.. use to have 2. They were a bit different in color. The other one died in my mass murder. I'm thankful this one survived.

    Hi Gilda,
    Frank made the cross on a few occasions. I have a couple. I know I showed a picture of one here years ago.

    Crosses that I know he made are:
    x concolor = Colorful Frank
    x Mount Toro = Frank's Mountain
    x parishii = Parish Frank
    x philipinense = Frank's Philly
    x rothschildianum = Booth's Rotten Frank
    x Saint Swithin = Barbara Booth
    x stonei = Stoned Frank
    x Susan Booth = Frank's Daughter
    x Transvaal = Transit Frank
    x William Trelease = Frank Trelease

    Peter
