I am just noticing while writing the descriptions we have a few more pink flowered hybrids offered this year.  Loddiglossa (C. amethystoglossa x C. loddigesii) has waxy, pink flowers presented in a huge cluster of 25 well above the foliage.  Little Mermaid (C. walkeriana x Bc. Maikai) is a simple hybrid with lots of character. Its flower shape is influenced by an ancestral species in its breeding B. nodosa, the flower count by another, C. bowringiana and a third species C. walkeriana for color.   What is the objective of this cross?  We are envisioning heads of 10-12 pink flowers with spotted pink lips, on a plant about 10” tall. We have seen some really nice hybrids arise from breeding with Little Mermaid and we believe this will be a good one too

Imported Seedling from Sunset Valley Orchids, USA. Picture shows the parent of this cross. The above description was written by Fred Clarke and details the expectation of this hybrid.
