    This is a plant I got from eggshells and is of Orchid Inn Breeding. I knew it was a special plant, but I didn't know this special! On Saturday it received a 90 pint FCC/AOS. 16.8 cm horrizontal spread and 11cm vertical. I named it for eggshells as he is one of the most talented Paph growers I know.

    Congrats my friend. It is one of the vigorous clones that I grew. It bloomed 4 flowers in one stem in the past so its only going to get better.

    Thanks everyone!

    Orchid Inn was breeding two different wilhelminae's together. This is an offspring.

    Have you pollinated anything with it? Did you give the pollen to someone to cross it with...?

    Oh my God! That's fantastic! Congratulations! I've been growing and exhibiting orchids for 38 years and I have never come close to getting an FCC! That's GREAT for you! WooHoo!
