    Actually Red Beauty has some warm tolerance in the genetics. Some folk on Oahu have been able to flower it at reasonable altitudes. As a result I've crossed it with some known very warm tolerants to see if we can come up with a cross that is this colorful. Cymbidium Nut is now in bloom for me and is rather warm tolerant.
