    Default Bl Richard Mueller crosses

    I just received Blc. Hawaiian Leopard (Bl. Richard Mueller x Blc. Waianae Leopard). It has very nice fragance in the monring. I have the Bl. Yellow Bird (Bl. Richard Mueller x B. nodosa) since spring, and it just opened its first bud yesterday. I can tell the Yellow Bird is really liking the Houston hot/humid weather because the growth is at least 6" taller than the rest of the canes.

    I've had Yellow Bird on my "want list" for a long time. The 1st looks like it has really good substance to the petals too. Good ol' Richard Mueller !

    Very nice! Bl Yellow bird is 3/4 nodosa for Richard Mueller is 1/2 nodosa.
    I am a bit of a Bl Richard Mueller nut...I have Richard Mueller and 16 different crosses made with it as one parent. Not to mention the couple that I have in capsule, that I made this year.

    I am a bit of a Bl Richard Mueller nut
    I know After seeing your RM cross pictures, I had to add them to my wish list. Two weeks ago, I was talking to a vendor, I sent her my wish list, but didn't expect her to have them all. Well, she had most of them. Since I couldn't make decision what not to get, I ended ordered about 20 orchids, 14 of them are RM crosses.

    I am broke, but orchidy happy.

    Lovely! I'm going to have to invest in one of those Muellers. They are just sooo pretty with their spots and star shaped petals. Great job on those!
