The P. rotundiflora x hemiepiphytica finally opened its flower! Color as shown here is actually about 3 shades darker in real life, with a notable metallic quality. For a good example of the real color, a different clone of the same cross is pictured in the new 'Savage Garden'.
I plan on trying to cross this guy with the new P. gigantea flower coming up. I think the cross P. gigantea x (moranensis x ehlersiae) and the reverse has already worked, as the pods are swelling a lot, so could have a new hybrid out soon.
Beautiful pics, I really like the mutant! Cant wait to see what the cross comes out like, hope all goes well for you.
They are slowly and painfully killing you.....did you know that?
How brainwashed are you?
Unfortunately, the pod on the moranensis x ehlersiae started browning today, and I opened it..... nothing. there's still hope for the reverse cross though, as it's still growing the pod strong... problem is, that one looks oddly hollow too.
