    Default Orange Nugget x Luk Ton

    A very intense, deep yellow baby cattleya-like orchid, only 6 cm in diameter.
    The blooms are lively, waxy and striking. Enjoy!

    Cheers, Michael

    I agree with the others - the texture and substance is fantastic, looks carved from wax. I'm familiar with Orange Nugget, which accounts for the shape and color, but I can't find any information on Luk Ton or any similar spelling. Is it perhaps Loog Tone? That would account for the shine and substance.

    Yes, Loog Ton is correct too. You know, it's a Thai name and spelling can be different in so many ways, who is correct... no one!!!!

    Michael, Luk Ton doesn't appear to be a registered hybrid. Is the spelling correct?

    Beautiful color and bloom form.

    Cheers,
