    Some interesting questions are raised here. It will take longer than I have this morning to get my ideas straight, but I'll come back to this thread when I have.

    I know that most of my roth hybrids are re-makes from recent years - not all, those with old varietal names like Marshallswick are props from props going back a hundred years maybe. I also have a piece of P.chamberlainianum var chamberlainianum from the very first importation - more than 140 years... Chamberlain was a politician as well as an orchid grower - UK Foreign Secretary about 1900 - another member of the same family was our Prime Minister in 1938 and thought he had made a deal with Hitler, under which Hitler would stop invading other countries and we should not have a war....but the orchid grower Chamberlain lived a few miles only from where I lived ( much later) and his collection went to Birmingham City Parks Department on his death - from where I scrounged a division 50 years ago...
    Orchids are long-lived, if we look after them.
