    Thanks a lot everyone, it is really nice that many people are interested in it and that I can apply my study on model plants to that in my beloved orchids.

    Amey very interesting at least I get some idea how the buds open maybe can you explain further how the combination of 2 species the blossom exceeds the size of their parents eg Catt hybrids the diameter more than 5 inches, what are the scientific explanation behind that I like to know since you are very expert in this field? Many thanks Amey.
