    You must feel like a proud papa! I can't wait to see what they grow up to look like. Too cool!

    Interesting to see what flower form dominates, could be very interesting indeed.

    In this cross, Phalaenopsis finleyi is the seed while Phalaenopsis Tetrasambo is the pollen. I was hoping the reverse be more interesting but the seed pod did not pull through.

    At this stage, they are showing strong thick roots with a few of the seedlings growing up to 5 leaves at this size. That concludes that the size of this Phalaenopsis will be small like Phalaenopsis finleyi. The leaves are green and hard which takes after Phalaenopsis Tetrasambo but slightly rounded like Phalaenopsis finleyi.

    Next, I will take a few of the seedlings when they grow up a little to mount. Need to see if they take after Phalaenosis finleyi which likes to be mounted.

    Cheers

    Congrats Vincent. A very intriguing cross. I hope that linleyi will increase the flower count.
