    since this one has a dark leaf base, most assuredly vinicolor parents were used. it's just that most silmarils are "alba" (technically not the correct term since alba really means white, and these are green-and-white, but i say "spike" and i say "alba" ). in fact, every other plant from this set of breeding lines (oriental mystique, alma gavaert) that i have seen is an alba, but that of course does not preclude vini breeding.

    i.e. paph onyx was first registered presumably as a vini, but most of the onyx around these days are albas.

    Milt. Shelob was registered by someone named McCully in 1998. A grower in Hawaii, if I recall.

    The OZ does some breeding on other genera as well--I know they dabble in masdies, maybe also oncidium intergenerics. This masdie was bred by the OZ:

    Swallow (Falcata x infracta)

    Falcata is a famous old hybrid dating back to 1899, coccinea x veitchiana. infracta is a small, successive-blooming, *warmth-tolerant* and very variably-colored species. The light purple form was used for this cross. This plant is a total weed--the infracta genes for warmth-tolerance really came through (since Falcata is a true cool grower).

    I'm glad you guys like to stay on task and don't go off topic. I give you guys a big fat F in english class. *BUZZ* Ok students, class is over.

    Pretty flower anyways Traci. How's that chickadee doing for you? I don't think I'm watering him enough..he's getting a little droopy.

    See NOW YOU GOT ME GOING OFF TOPIC. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

    My chickadee is doing great. I have it mounted and the roots are doing AWESOME. If I don't water everyday that it is sunny, the leaves get pretty skinny, but plump right back when I water. When my digi camera isn't being so tempermental, I'll take a pic for you.
