    Congratulations! Only just one plant saved from a whole flask? Awww it would have been so much fun if the others survived.

    You did this cross? Wow! great! Must be really exciting after having to wait for 3 years. Great work!

    What were the parents? Let me guess .... P. amboinensis x fasciata???

    Cheers!

    I love this flower! I admit to liking blooms that make a splash and this cross defiinitely does. To me it seems that much more special because it is the lone survivor from the flask. I also like the waxy substance this bloom has.
