    I too think the Bonanza cross is awesome!

    Only Mueller cross I have at this time is Pot Hoku Gem 'Superspots' I've had this one for years and years. It was one of my first named orchids -- and is a mini.

    This is probably my most unusual Bl Richard Mueller cross. It is Maclemoreara Lanny Morry a cross of Richard Mueller with Schomburkia thompsoniana. It changes color from a red to an orange shade

    I really like what Richard Mueller brings to it's hybrids, star-shaped flowers with trumpet lips and spots. Being I have an awarded Richard Mueller, I am going to make a few of my own crosses.

    This is my last one to add for the night. It is Blc Meiner Seele Schatz a cross of C Penney Kuroda ‘Spots’ X Bl Richard Mueller

    Drool.........

    Sigh, I love all of them! And the schomburgkia cross in particular!!

    Btw, are you sure it isn't possibly "Blc Meiner Seele SchatZ" - that would make sense in German and with the "s" it seems fairly likely that someone heard someone else pronounce the word "schatz" and didn't realize how it was spelled when they wrote it down.

    Wow! I ADORE that last one. The beauty of a Richard Mueller and then a hint of something Peggy Sue Carpenter like. Jaw dropping....
