Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.
A few years back I was at an orchid show in San Jose, Costa Rica and saw Lc. Beaumesnil ‘Juan Jose’ FCC/AOS in all its glory, is very impressive! I looked up the parents and realized I needed to re-make the cross as I have both parents, and here it is.
Imported Seedling from Sunset Valley Orchids, USA. Picture shows the parent of this cross. The above description details the expectation of this hybrid.
