Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.
Here is a different take on breeding with Little Toshie (Sc. Beaufort x Blc. Toshie Aoki) its superb, flat, bright yellow flowers and dark red lips crossed onto Love Fresh (Sc. Beaufort x L. briegeri) with its diminutive plant habit, and mini yellow flowers and red lips. This cross will be very cute mini-Catt plants, sturdy little stems will display 4-5, bright yellow flowers with red lips. The bloom will be 2” across and these little plants will flower easily in 3” pots. While writing this description I was so inspired I took a break and went out to the greenhouse and made this cross again! .
Imported Seedling from Sunset Valley Orchids, USA. Picture shows the parent of this cross. The above description details the expectation of this hybrid.
