Amazing, agree with everyone that the first one is special, but I like the last one as well. Are any of the crosses you posted noticeably larger with regards to DS and NS?

Oh myyyyyyyy… what a sight! It’s an army!
Kudos for a great job of raising from flasks!
How much time and tears (and space) did it take??
Thanks Leslie.
The most obvious problem is space. Most of my roths (400 or so) are between 1-8 years old with about half around 5 years. I find roths the easiest paph to grow and hardly ever lose any.
I have a 6m x 3m greenhouse that is jammed with plants so currently building a second slightly bigger one to house just multis.

I have taken all the flowering roths out to catalog (measure and photograph) and will now remove all the spikes. This will also give me room to reorganise the greenhouse while I have some spare time (we are in Covid lockdown) 🤬
