    Certainly a nice way for them to greet you when you got home.......................Now if they only cooked and cleaned while you were gone you'd be all set..............................Beautiful blooms Ed. Big flowers I assume? AL

    thanks everyone for your kind comments, I also have a Mikaso Indigo and when I looked up the cross it is the same parents for both the blue and pink. They are mericlones so do they cross the 2 parent orchids and pick the best blue and pink of the hybrid and then clone? the cross is Ascda. Royal Sapphire X V. coerulea.

    Huh, that's interesting. I wonder if I 'selfed' my pink one if I'd get some blues! Can that happen when the genes get shuffled around in the selfing, I wonder?
