    Hi San. I'm thinking that a back cross to intermedia v. alba will maybe give more flowers per spike and a slightly larger flower on a plant that is still small in size. This is something that you will not get in every plant, but the results should be nice.

    Hi Wade, I have C.intemedia v.alba. It will bloom in about a month. I will keep the pollen to make a back cross. Let's see what will happen.

    Great!!! A friend of mine had one of them. It actually seemed to be a more robust plant and easier to bloom than the regular C. intermedia. I don't think you'll have any problem getting homes for all the babies.
