    I grow a few Cyms but not many. I have a few Oriental species, 2 non oriental, 2 primaries and one hybrid.

    Due to the hint and being the hint might be one of the species that I do have, I am guessing that one parent might be aloifolium

    If it is than that narrows down the possibilities. I know it isn't Hugh Gordon [aloifolium x parishii (sanderae)] for that is one of the primaries in my collection.

    The flower shape and color reminds me of Cymbidium hookerianum. Is that one of the parents??

    no on both counts.I should also mention that it is a first flowering seedling from the original cross,hence the title

    one more parent guess for the flower shape reminds me also of tracyanum but without the striping.

    that will end my limited knowledge of Cyms
