    Hi Christian,

    Blc Daybreak is the other parent, and is pictured at the bottom of this page:
    http://www.rv-orchidworks.com/orchid...-bloom-39.html

    Campobello bloomed last fall, so Hoa stored the pollen, which he's just used on Daybreak. He's also stored some of Daybreak's pollen so he can do the sex thing again the next time Campobello blooms.

    The Mc was given to me after I posted a thread on a Highland games I was at last summer. I'm a competitive bagpiper and our competitions are held April-Oct at Highland games throughout New England (they're held all over, but I usually only travel to the New England games.)

    Thanks for reading the thread! I love it too, partly because it's an unfolding adventure. And it's personal. My grandmother is basking in all the attention!

    Default Blc. Campobello 'Newberry'AM/AOS

    Hi Christian,
    Thanks for your kind words and interest in this project of ours. I pollinated the Blc. Daybreak 'Carmela' on Jan 21 2007 using the pollen from the Blc. Campobello 'Newberry'AM/AOS.
    I repost the flower picture of this particular Campobello clone here so we would have a record of it on this thread.
    Since eventually we would like to take the Gladys Young for AOS judging, we could guess the potentials of the cross through its parents. The Campobello flower is quite large (at least 6 in. across) and has very nice shape. The yellow color is not as intense of other yellow catts that I have seen but still very nice nevertheless. The plant is certainly a once a year bloomer, during the fall only. It is thus clear that crossing it with the Daybreak might improve the blooms, its growth habit and blooming season even further.
    The pollen of this particular bloom shown below was collected, stored in my fridge in a sealed tube, and used to pollinate the Blc. Daybreak.

    Default Blc. Daybreak 'Carmela'

    The pod parent this time is the Daybreak 'Carmela'.

    After growing this plant for a while, I can say with certainty that this is a very vigorous clone. From its growing habit, I could also tell that this grex is capable of blooming several times per year (at least twice) and it can make specimen size plant quite easily! It should impart lot of vigor into its progenies. The picture of the Daybreak flower is posted here after opening for 2 weeks. We can see that the yellow color has become more intense. The lip of the Daybreak is fuller than the Campobello but the size of the flower is smaller and the yellow color of the Daybreak is more intense. The Gladys Young cross could inherit the best of both parents and I think that some could get even the AM/AOS award.

    Default Blc. Daybreak's stem 2 weeks after pollination

    Finally we got a break in the weather pattern during the weekend, sunshine that is. So I was able to snap the pictures of the Daybreak and the stem of the flower that I pollinated 2 weeks ago.
    It is clear that the stem is swelling and it does look bigger than the stem of the other flower which did not get pollinated.

    For such an occasion, I can happily declare that our maternity ward is officially open. Our Missy is with child, heheeh ahemmm ... incorect choice of words, with CHIDREN (lot of them), aka, our McJulie is pregnant ... Heheeee I am only a surrogate incubator (even though I am a male). Heheheee ... Why do I think I am a seahorse, huh?

    I have quite a few other concolor yellow catts. Maybe doing this gives me some ideas for other similar concolor yellow crosses!!!
    Cheers. DocSpock-SurrogateIncubator

    Thank you for the beautifull pics! It sure is gonna be a yellow one huh?

    Well all fingers and toes crossed here! If there's one thing I've learned through my (very short) experience with breeding it is that: Everything can go wrong at any time

    Can't wait to see the blooms ... in like 5 years ... - well seedlings then.. Ohh I would love to take care of one of the babies, I live in Denmark though, so that's probably not possible..

    Keep posting those pics a couple of weeks apart!

    That's a great update! And very logical. Thank you DocSeaHorse!

    If somebody wants to figure out what's involved in shipping flasks internationally, we might be able to do a couple of replates for our overseas friends. It would still be a couple of years, but just a thought.

    WooooHOoooo I'm right on it - but I do think it's got something to do with certifcates and that would be to much trouble!

    And the answers are in (I think this goes for all countries in EU - at least Denmark):
    First of all, you guys would need to get a phytosanitary certificate from ... well somewhere.. Then the overseas receiver shall report the import to their local plant-customs department (or something like that) where the plants are to be checked. This is even the case for in-vitro shipments! ! In Denmark the customs-check costs the equivalent of roughly 150$.

    Sooo summin' up it will be to much hassle for you guys and cost alot of money for us.

    But if anyone just happens to swing by Denmark, it is legal to bring in-vitro cultures in your hand bagage on the planes as far as I could understand

    So, when we have babies, maybe when I am in our offices in The Netherlands I could pop over to Denmark and drop off a flask and meet the kitties...
