    Default Epidendrum 'Miracle Valley' Aiko

    Greetings and good evening all! I just won an Epidendrum this last weekend at the CT Orchid Society Orchid Harvest (Thank you very much Orchid Society!). The hybrid is a 'Miracle Valley' Aiko. Could anyone of you x enlighten me as to the lineage of this hybrid? I usually stick to species orchids, but I occasionally have a hybrid. When I do, I like to know the genes that went into it. Can anyone help? Thanks much! Also, any tips on window sill culture are welcome. For reference, I have lots of light; I can turn a Brassavola purple with the best of them!

    Epi. Miracle Valley 'Aiko' is a complex Epidendrum hybrid (9 generations of hybridizing) consisting almost entirely (95%) of two species: cinnibarinum and radicans.
