    Default What should I cross with this?

    I have a Leaudemanniana pescatorea blooming and am thinking about either trying to cross it with a Gongora or a Stanhopea. Any opinions?

    I also have another Polycycnis barbata in spike which I will try to pollinate my Gongora chocoensis with. that way I can name the species Polygon!

    Too bad I won't be the one naming the genus. Those Royal bastards!!!!! I have about 5 hybrids that I could name but I just can't see sending them money to do so.
