    Pete, as of April of this year, 'Chester Hill' still has an AM/AOS of 82 points.

    Thanks for the quick response, lja! Orchids Limited has this cross listed as FCC on their website, so just wanted to double check.

    One of my roths is 'Janet' FCC/AOS x 'Chester Hills' AM/AOS, so just curious!

    Yeah, I saw that too. Maybe it did get FCC awarded after April? I doubt it, though!

    The info I gave you came from Awards Quarterly on Wildcatt, as of their April update. They don't list a clone named 'Chester Hills', only 'Chester Hill', and that clone still has an AM. It's possible that got upgraded to an FCC, but considering the last Chester Hill got 82 points (a pretty low AM), the particular plant would have had to have been pretty remarkably stunning to have made all of them take the leap to FCC status.

    But, anything's possible....

    Thanks for the info, lja, I really appreciate it! It would be nice if it's now FCC awarded but highly doubtful. Still anything is possible!

    I really don't think 'Chester Hills' would get a second-look these days by AOS judges, even those that awarded that FCC to a white phal a few years back.

    The standard of roths has been so shattered by the 'Rex' x 'MM' cross that most of the older clones wouldn't even get considered for an award these days. Or so I'm told. i.e. 'Charles E', 'Borneo', etc. 'Rex' I'm sure wouldn't get an FCC, since all it is is big big big with pale color, and the judging system is supposed to consider both factors.

    I'm glad I also have the Rex x MM cross! Super Slipper Girl is getting a HUGE one next week! Congrats and Merry Christmas!
