Plemont is (Hanne Popow x dalessandroi). This flower just started to open. It is only one small flower, but it is a first time bloom on a single growth seedling. When it opens all of the way, I'll get a photo straight on...but I just love the windows in the pouch!!
Should only be a day or two, Rose... once this thing decided it was time to open, it literally 'popped' open in a day or two. I'm reserving judgement on the colour until some more of the 'bud green' goes out of the flower. It does have wider petals than I expected from a dalessandrio cross, though.
Very fine, did you get it from Rattcliffe? I tried to get one but it never worked out. Next time I'm in the UK I'm either going to try to get to EYOF in Jersey or at least someone who has phrags from them to sell. BTW some airline has flights from London to Jersey for $19 US! Yay dalessendroi hybrids!! Love the way that just rolls off the tongue!
Eric, I was told that if you let EYOF know in advance that you want to visit and you are an orchid nut then they might able to give you a behind the scenes tour of their library, etc. They don't sell plants to public though. Plus, as far as I know you'd need CITES to get the plants from Jersey to UK, anyway.
