    This is Taida lawrence x Krull's Red Hot. I purchased a flask of these several years ago from Peter Lin and the first two to bloom were keepers. They are vigorous growers and the color is stable. Flowers are a little over 7 cm and well presented on the spike. I think it has potential. I'm pretty sure the Krull's Red Hot is a tetraploid and I'm guessing the Taida Lawrence is too.

    :clap: Awesome, and the color is real :clap: unlike those ghastly dyed-orange abominations which have shown up this week alongside the ghastly blue ones I've been seeing for sale at my local market.

    Wow what a pleasant surprise. Thank you for flowering and sharing this. This should be 4n for reasons you stated, both parents are 4n.
