    I've been all over looking for the parents of this cross. If anyone can find it please let me know.

    That is gorgeous!

    Is there such a thing as frog spray, that maybe turns them into princes

    Oh Cathy, it is so pretty. So sorry about the frog and the spike (sounds like a children's book - lol). Here is the information you request:
    Vascostylis Fuchs Precious Jewel (Ascocenda John De Biase x Rhynchostylis coelestis)

    cheers,

    Pretty little one. I've seen that cross here but not in flower.
    I hope the frog croaked!!

    Cathy, that is very pretty. Shame on the frog which broke the most of the spike off. Being Vasco as a name, I hope it would put a new spike again.
