    Coudn't resist this guy at the local orchid society show. The vendor had a few different crosses but I liked this one the best.

    The cross is roth 'Bion' FCC/AOS x phil var. roebelinii 'Birch Point' HCC/AOS

    Thanks again!

    I too am a fan of stripes, it was the contrast between the cream background and burgundy stripes that instantly attracted me to this one.
