    Very nice plant! I only know this plant to flower poor, with a lot of deformed flowers and the youngest buds to fall of. How do you grow this plant, with very much light?

    If you read my earlier threads on it you would know the difficulties I faced with the ones I had. From what I could gather from other other growers they too faced these problems and traced it to the first few batches of Irene Dobkin mericlones - flawed mericloning process , perhaps? - But this one from the most recent batch of mericlones is very robust and easier to grow, like the rest from the same batch. The vendor told me that that he had close to a hundred of the plants but he had only 2 left when he came to our show. I wish had bought both of them.

    I grow this under cattelya conditions - much more light than for normal phals.

    Ok, that sounds like a good explanation. I do some cloning of phalaenopsis myself and a bad startpoint for cloning is dramatic for mass production. Do you also think it might be because it is an interspecific cross and that the two genomes of phal and asco doesn't match well together?

    Yew - how beautiful. I'm so glad you did better with this one, because I'm so happy to be able to see it.

    That could very well be the case. There have been very few intergeneric crosses between phal and other members of the vandaceous tribe and not for lack of trying. To my knowledge there have not been any repeat crosses of Irene Dobkin. The original cross was made with Asctm miniatum x Phal Doris 4n. However, there are numerous crosses of Paraphalaenopsis with other vandaceous genera, particularly from Singapore. Even Doritis pulcherrima has been successfully crossed with other vandaceous genera, but so far I have not seen any intergenerics of the large, round flowers of Doritaenopsis with the vandaceous.
