Here is an update on a flask that I got a little over a year ago from OrchidInn.
The info from Sam is as follows:
(OIV0152 Jade Dragon (malipoense 'Twin Tower' x fairrieanum 'Red Glory')) Red Glory is from our FCC strain with very dark red color. We hope for well colored Jade Dragon.

The roots were dense so I kept the seedlings together and they grew very well, there are 22 in total! Excited to see how they will grow, I expect that they will get huge!
Photos: freshly opened flask, 1 week post potting, 6 months, 15 months, separated and sorted, newly potted up!

They were of good size in the flask and have grown big fast!!
Good batch for sure in that regard.
A small number of Jade Dragon I have seen in bloom were all rather compact. I would think 3-4 of the largest seedlings you have are near blooming size.
I made a similar cross, Norito Hasegawa x fairrieanum. They have been good growers. Looking forward to seeing some in bloom in the next two years or so.
