    I just had a visitor, who thought that the other parent was L.cinnabarina (as it used to be) and had been registered by one of the California breeeders -Rod McKellen or something like that ? and that I have to check out too.

    This is one where you learn with experience...you have to buy it ! But it is all fairly obvious - as I say to myself when I break a flower stem - " Geoff - you are a silly b***** you should have known it wouldn't bend that far....."

    Thanks for the warning! I haven't had to manhandle anything yet, and I know now not to!

    I was really worried with one of my Paphs because it was pretty heavily curved downward due to the weight of the flower. I thought for sure I'd break it while staking it! But I didn't, thankfully

    I would certainly say it has some of that in it! it is a very strong healthy plant either way!
    Yes that is what Encyclia vittelina is called now, and it is one of the parents of this hybrid.

    Hi Geoff, this a Prosthechea vitellina x Encyclia randii. It also matches the blooming season, as I find many blooming plants offered for sale now of this hybrid.
