    Default Cochleanthes hybrids

    A couple of years ago I'm made crossing Cochleanthes flabelliformis X Cochleanthes marginata, marginata was carrying the seedpod. Just have a look both parents here.What would you expect the flower should be? is it follow the flabell or marginata in term of size? What do you think the color of the lip? Any idea.

    Cool

    Hi:
    There are only a handful of Cochleanthes hybrids but apparently flabelliformis should dominate on size and the other parent might give color to the lip. My guess is that you may have a large marginata type hybrid. However, in other genera it is important whi carries the seedpod regarding size and color. Your guess is as good as mine. Dis you get to grow some? Any left (jejeje)?

    Hi Jose many thanks for your thought I also initially think like that talking about hybrids I agree with you crossing between flabelliformis and amazonica C. Amazine) the flowers really very beautiful and huge like both parents however this one the marginata carried seedpod the biggest flower of flabelli. totally disappeared and marginata apparently more dominant in determine the size of flower, talking about beautiful you all can judge it i cant. I will pose the photo soon.

    Default Cochleanthes flabelliformis X Cochleanthes marginata

    Here is the photos of the above crossing very fragrance inherited from both parents size similar or little bit bigger than marginata. The lip is dark purple which is not present for the both parents lasting more than 10 days. Hi Jose right now I only have one plant every time the new shoot come out the size of the plant will increase follow the flabelliformis. Few more plants still very small and the tag was lost I'm not sure whether that is the same plant. Thanks for looking and your comments

    Zainal:

    From the judging point of view, if you look at both parents and the hybrid you see an improvement in form, color, size and lip. This is what breeding is all about! I would love to present one in an AOS judging, I'm sure there would be a few awards!
