    Default Cyc. William Clark

    Here is my third and final cycnoches photo submission for now. The rest of my seedlings are not cooperating on blooming yet. Here is a photo of the whole plant in a 3 1/2" square plastic pot inside a 4" clay pot for stability. The plant is potted in 100% sphag for the time being. My s/h experiment on one of the other cycnoches seedlings seems to be working well.

    This one is a newly-named crossed called William Clark. I believe the breeder, Fred Clark, named it after his father. Cyc. William Clark is (herrenhusanum x cooperi). This one looks virtually identical to the parent cooperi, to me. This first bloom had 12 flowers.

    Enjoy!

    The color is a trip, I have never seen a gold orchid that looked so ...gold. Great blooms! Are they fragarant?

    No fragrance with Cyc. William Clark. The flowers are "thin" compared to the thick, waxy blooms of the green Richard Dickow but seem to be lasting much longer.

    The blooms on Richard Dickow lasted right at two weeks in primo condition. They are on the way out now.
