    Oddly enough, or perhaps not (?) this was not bred by Goodale Moir himself - named in his honour I suppose by the breeder. He did breed similar orchids as I recall it - but then he was very prolific - I think he is about sixth in the list of the breeders with the greatest number of registrations of new hybrids - well over a thousand. And remember that whilst amateurs like me probably register every single one of our own crosses - numbering not many - the prolific breeders only register a few out of every thousand - after all there is a fee to be paid for every registration ! Many years ago I used to correspond with him , long before the days of e-mail, maybe even before the days when all overseas mail went airmail automatically , so the exchange of letters took quite a while between Honolulu and UK . We had some interesting chats - especially about his ideas about sowing seed when the moon is waxing rather than waning, and so on. Looking up this one, brought back some happy and interesting memories from the past. A pity I never got to meet him - never got to Hawaii at all , and guess I never will now.
    My plant btw has three leads - the third is not quite made up yet. A total of 10 buds and flowers. When better established, and better grown, it should double spike per bulb.
