Very interesting outcome. The dark line in the pouch rim reminds me pearcei hybrids
Yes! You are right! I aware that too... Why???
Both species klotzscheanum and hirtzii does'nt have dark line rim.

Stranger than that, by breeding some pearcei crosses that showed a nice line X hirtzii, the rim is not always there. Interesting genetic game! Still a lot to learn and understand...

J-P:

That is a fantastic cross.

I love the contrast of the creamy pouch with the dark green and browns that predominate the rest of the flower.

I hope this one will be available next year !/?
