    Default Holcoglossum kimballianum

    Got this recently thru a friend who has access to an immense collection of orchids, the owner whom I haven't met has agreed to part with a few bits & pieces for my collection.
    He has flowered a number of these ranging from the white with deep purple lip to near all white. They are all seedlings I believe, still working on getting info on where they came from & what the deal is with the colour variations. This came in bud so no idea of colour. I was hoping for purple lip form but got this which I still like heaps. Maybe a new variety, working on more info. Hard to get, no-one has seen this before that I know of.

    Not sure what has happened here Zain, the original grower hasn't or can't advise on where the flasks came from or if they were alba x purple lip forms. He may not have been told by choice or other also. I wanted the purple lip form but this will do for now. I'll get a purple lip one eventually.

    This one should be very expensive item you can selfing and rare, the lip purple can easily get it just a matter of time.

    Purple lip one for sale in lots of places at the moment, wondering if they came from the same place as this one originally. If they did then maybe more like this will turn up. Would like to self it but the plant is very short on roots so it may strain it too much. Very tempted though.

    All the best Roy forget it about the outcome where you got it earlier yours is one of the outliers there.
