    In any cross you make with C. briegeri, it will be the dominant component. Actually I'm surprised that you got petals that large on the yellow flower.
    Thanks for your insight Horst. Actually the flowers are not that big, in the last photo, they just APPEAR to be big, because the inflorescence is long and hence the flowers are much closer to camera than the Pink lady Misaki flowers, but yes compared to L. briegeri they are big, in the end it is also the offspring of Lc. Irene Finney hehe.

    Thanks Betty, I hope it works out this time, the last time I did this with two nice coerulea catts, got capsules and all, but lost them during transportation to India.

    Nice going Amey. I bet these two orchids make a beautiful hybrid.

    Cheers,
