Rhynchodenia magic wand in bloom
So beautiful Sriram !!! I was really intrigued by this cross and googled to find out more about it and discovered it is a cross between Rhyncostylis coelestis x Seidenfadenia mitrata both of which parents I have but both bloom only once a year. Further googling revealed that Magic Wand blooms 4-5 times a year. WOW just my type of orchid. I'll be looking out for this orchid ..Btw the Rhy coelestis is in bloom now, but there is no sign of blooming from the Seidenfadenia mitrata. They usually both bloom at about the same time.
Yes. absolutely. it is a good cross. It has the lip structure of Siedenfadenia mitrata. My Rhy. Coelestis is also in bloom and Siedenfadenia mitrata also did not bloom this year.

A very successful cross indeed. Yes I love that mitrata lip and the coelestis flower stalk - what is there not to love about this cross! Absolutely on top of my wish list/
Beautiful color and form.
Very nice crossing and the flower count too congrats Sriram.
