Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.
Guess What (Waikiki Gold x Lc. Trick or Treat) is one of my favourite breeding plants due to its vibrant orange-yellow blooms, 8-9 of which are well displayed above the foliage on strong stems. Epi. stamfordianum flower are finely spotted in burgundy and there can be as many as 90 flowers on a branched inflorescence! We are expecting this cross to very floriferous. A similar cross to this one is Eplc. Volcano Trick (Lc. Trick or Treat x Epi. stamfordianum) it was very colourful and easy to grow, it inspired us to make this paring. We expect the offspring to have larger and fuller flowers than Volcano Trick but with similar orange flowers with red spotting and boldly spotted lips.
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.
