First blooming on a small seedling.
The cross is gratrixianum Wedgewood x Lula Girl
Beautiful colors on this one. Good form, also.
I need to bloom one
really nice coloured dorsal.
That dorsal is not just well coloured, it is awesome! Its one failing is that as it has gained dorsal colour, it has lost the definition of its dorsal spots. Can't have everything I guess. What would I choose? Difficult, they would have to be two different lines of breeding, both lovely.
Interesting multifloral! oke:
Just wait until next year Eric. Justin will have it multi'ed up just for you!
Justin, that is a beauty. Nice color.
Ha right! Just wait till April!
I feel the same way...love the purple but the lack of spots makes the flower a little muddy in real life. I have another gratrix with very little purple but the white contrasting with the spots has better contrast. But I still like this one ok...i'll be keeping it and growing it on.
I just ordered a couple of orchid inn gratrix seedlings too. Cant have too many of these.
I have two of this cross from two different sources and see the same
type of difference between the two dorsals. Personally, I like the purple
in the dorsal.
I like both! Lots of spots and lots of purple! But hey, I can dream can't I?
This one resembles mine a bit. Same cross. (http://bobdickow.com/images/paph_gratrixianum.jpg)

Very nice and I agree with everyone that dorsal is great!
Beautiful!! Where did you find this? my kind of gratrixianum!!
