    Oh, well, it was the one labeled as "Eric Young 4N 'Mont Millais' x schlimii"
    the one we talked about the other night, that he wouldn't sell because his wife liked it so much - or only for the right price (tho it is listed on the website at $50.) That is not Sedenii is it?

    It looks very much like a Sedenii to me and I do not see any bess in that flower, not even a slight hint but I could be wrong. Sedenii is schlimii x longifolium. Personally, I like the Cardinale, the best of the bunch! Rob was willing to sell his best BS multigrowth div for $35 but I turned it down because I need space for my species. Maybe, one day when I have the space.

    Hm, well I don't know - that's what it is listed as.

    I don't think that's Sedenii because the petals are way too broad. It looks a little bit like that famous Cardinale 'Birchwood' that masquerades around as schlimii, but that clone has much rounder petals.

    It doesn't look like Eric Young x schlimii to me either--no obvious besseae influence. The petals are unusually flat, so I suspect that any longifolium influence has been tempered by a lot of schlimii...

    First make sure that he won't get mad that you're calling the identity of his plant in question, because we wouldn't want him to cut off your supply now, would we?

    First, I was going to say "can you remind me of what that cross was? It slipped my mind"

    And second, Holy you-know-what! Like you and Peter are not my main suppliers as of late?!?

    Oh, Heather, that is a lovely orchid greenhouse! I am green with envy...lol...
    I've never been to an orchid gh before and would love to. The problem is that I live in the "wrong" place...a drive to the nearest one would be lots and lots of hours for me (which is too far away).

    So many orchids at once...just a few orchids at some store would get me so extremely excited...imagine a whole gh of orchids! Hmmmm....

    Orchids make me !

    Actually, it's Phrag Cardinale 'Wilcox' that is being masqueraded around as "Schlimii" and it is not a true schlimii.
