P. rothschildianum x Chiu Hua Dancer first bloom. I have not seen pics of this cross previously. I am not impressed with this cross. I was hoping for longer twisting petals and a dorsal that opened more.

First blooming is stressful for MF sometimes. Give it another chance.

Yeah, I'd wait until it has had a chance to bloom 3 times before trashing / giving away

check for bugs. That is a problem in my greenhouse. It only takes one mealy bug to suck the life out of the bud.
You need to use a magnifier to see the small juvenile forms.
