    Indeed it has a gorgeous red. From experience I know the texture is good and the form specially the lip is excellent for this hybrid.
    Thank you Horst. While all the seedlings were nice, I've always thought this was the best. It is nice to see an expert confirm.

    ...and thank you to all for the comments.

    silk, satin and velvet and so much more. Simply gorgeous. Do you routinely spray insecticide/ pesticide/ fungicide/ miticides at regular intervals Cathy! whether their are signs or indications or not! Am requiring at the moment some final touches/ fine tuning to my overall approach to care of my plants. Amongst orchids their are nepenthes species. heliconias sp, jungle cacti sp, platycerium sp and finally tillandsia sp. Ive noticed you have very similar to this in your collection. Are all treated precautionary or as a preventative measure - care to share some tips and tactics for a fellow grower recovering from a serious plant apocalypse. Certainly not prepared to allow this (bacterial/fungal pathogen attack) to happen again thats for sure! Nepenthes are quite tricky with chemicals - no?

    That is a sexy flower! I would have referred to satin as well had I not been beaten to it!

    Hi Matt, First thank you for the comment.
    Yes, I do have all the plants in the greenhouse on a spray regime. I spray once every 5 to 10 days once for thrips (Orthene (acephate), Avid) and then with a fungicide cocktail. I rotate around with what I am using (BanRot, Diathane M45, Physan and Thiomil)I just have too many together not to keep this up. And I do spray Everything with the same mixture. The gesneriads, begonias, nepenthes all get the same treatment except I don't use Orthene (acephate) on the pitchers. I was told it might harm them? As far as heliconias and the staghorns, I seldom spray them they are outside in the yard. The platyceriums come in only on the coldest nights and gingers/heliconias are planted in the yard. But I don't think there is much that would hurt the gingers/heliconias anyway.
    One thing I learned from the african violet people was to use lysol spray in a can for mildew issues. Works great inside for plants under lights and under domes.
    Good luck Matt...remember what works for me might not work for you. PM and I will send you a link to something.

    Many thanks Cathy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!dont worry, i dont take the advice of a colleague as a defined religion and law. What a huge responsibility that would be to use and push our personal experiences as final word. Nah! too much guilt when it comes back at ya!. I do however value a general guidance from a few selected sources and eventually compile my own. Like Connie, some of us learn the hard way! as we like to feel we have helped many save a few quid and a few heartaches Im taking some myself ....... to lighten a pretty distressing experience and return too my normality! Cheers for the link!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Will cross ref. those chemicals with UK distributed products.
