    Thanks, Angela. Here's a photo I took this morning with the flower fully open. HNS = 8.4cm and PW = 2.8 cm. Wish I could get an AOS judging team out here to judge it because IMHO, it's awardable and I don't think it'll last until the Madison show in 11 days. Fingers crossed, though.

    Not sure why the photo is side-ways. If you click on it, it rotates to right side up. Gremlins.....

    Great flower Tom! Do you know the parentage?

    The original plant came from OZ years ago. For some reason, Z6777 sticks in my mind as being on the tag, but not 100% sure of that.

    Wonderful bloom & colour Tom!! I've been trying to self this cultivar for a while now, but it has resisted my efforts. It would be nice to know the ploidy. I've also got one in bloom at the moment in a bonsai pot.

    Not sure of the ploidy, but the plant is very robust and the flower has heavier substance than our other breeding clones.. We were able to self this clone a year or so ago and the seedlings are currently in compots, so they'll probably be available as individual seedlings this fall or next spring; current leaf spans are 2 inches so they have a ways to go.

    I use these (http://www.orchidmix.com/cat7.htm - look for the bulbophyllum pots). Not for everything, but a lot of my besseae/schlimii type plants. I'd say they were breeding plants but I don't have much luck breeding phrags anymore. Anything that I want to show, for sure.

    Thanks. The leaves suggest extra chromosomes!

    Turns out _I'm_ the one who didn't last until the Madison show last weekend. Fighting a cough and cold the week before the show and it just kept getting worse instead of better. Ended up with pneumonia, and steroids + antibiotics became the order of the day. My sincere apologies to the folks up in Madison; hoping to do the show next year.

    In any event, slowly improving over-all and looking forward to the upcoming MOS show in Madison Heights in late March. Here's the latest photo of 'Carlisle' with two flowers open on the same stem.

    ......and here's the final photo before we breed this clone. It's amazing, that the original flower lasted for 19 days before it fell off.
