    Yours is lovely! It must be very happy with you.

    I think Lucky Strike is one of the parents of Mem. Robert Strait Blue Hawaii? But I don't remember what it was crossed with. Blue Hawaii was white with a blue lip and blue tip and stripe on the petals.

    Fascinating Tami, I just had a look at Mem. Robert Strait Blue Hawaii, the flowers are very beautiful but quite different. I couldn't find the pedigree though. Thanks

    Amey, Blc Lucky Strike has been used in 62 hybrids and some of those have been used to then hybridise with another 125 hybrids (Thanks Orchidwiz )

    It seems to be colour dominant against the reds... or at least it just intensifies and darkens the pink. (aaah, gotta love Orchidwiz with all it's pics)

    Interestingly, only 2 of the 62 hybrids have ever been awarded - and they were all before 2000. (Have I mentioned how great Orchidwiz is? hahahha)

    good luck with the hybridizing :-)

    Thanks Tim ! I need to get Orchidwiz, may be as a birthday present this time instead of more orchids, or with more orchids hehe.

    Amey, I think WITH more orchids will work best!!! I also have OrchidWiz on my "must have" list, but I haven't put the due date yet... (would like to put... tomorrows date, but...)
