I'm quite confident this one will survive as the vendor said this is one of the 50% survivors from the batch he imported.BTW this is the 'Elmhurst' HCC AOS clone; another clone is the 'York' also an HCC. No Ascps Irene Dobkin has ever obtained a higher award. For me the 'Elmhurst' clone has better form.
I don't think anyone has ever attempted to repeat the cross - its bad reputation as a difficult grower has deterred many, I suppose. I would really like to see the many modern phals crossed with Asctm miniatum. A Thai nursery recently offered a Ascps Irene Dobkin x Phal Carmela's Pixie but the picture used to illustrate the cross was an Irene Dobkin!
