    Default My Orchid Hybridization Project

    Now that I have a thriving growing area, I thought of doing some hybridisation on my own. Here are some of the results from my project. Although it is still early days, I'll share whatever the results of the hybrids that I come up with.

    The Parents

    Phalaenopsis Seletar Tiger


    Phalaenopsis fuscata

    The Result

    the seedpod on Phalaenopsis Seletar Tiger

    Did one more cross today, decided to do it because the Cattleya is badly bitten by snails and other pests.

    The Parents

    Cattleya mesquitae


    Brassavola nodosa

    Nice going, Vincent. Hope all of the crosses you make are successful. Looking forward to seeing the tiny orchid babies when you have the flasks growing.

    cheers,
