I know... I got like 60 hoping to get some nice ones to use in breeding. They’re from five dealers so not all the same crosses.

Wow 60! I’m sure you will flower a few great ones!

Sweet. I've only got one, but it opened a few days ago. Will post it when it's ready for the public 😊

Very nice P. helenae which in addition seem to flower for the first time. Good luck with the rest of your 60 helenaes. Must be a great sight when the mayority of them will flower simultaneously one day.

Yes this was a first time bloom on a two growth plant.
The next two helenae to bloom this year... #30 bloomed for the first time last year. #47 has bloomed a few times. There is a second bud on its way up.4F73EC4B-9C90-48A7-BBA5-C576DC4D4E08.jpeg68338641-A2D7-4007-A011-00D73518C186.jpegBAF1CE60-ABFC-47EC-ACDF-01D3F8430A8E.jpeg

All cute but #47 is my fave with its fat pouch and green bos (dot) on the staminode. Need a division lol.

Oh, Leslie, you are such a sucker for size! 😁 But, ok, #47 is definately a good one too....and you are right about the green bos, it's a very nice feature!

Phred, are they all from same parentage/breeding line, so far?

Jens, sometimes size isn't of disadvantage. 😇 But I must confirm, Leslie has an excellent taste. # 47 is a real keeper.

Hello Guldal
I have helenae from three growers blooming at the moment... #30, 31, 32, and 33 are all siblings.
