Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.

The second and third pictures are the first plants to bloom of this cross, very nice!  The Petite Purple (Lc. Mini Purple x Sl. Orpetii) has dark purple flowers, that are flat, from a small plant, and somehow, I did not take a photo of the flower!   Virginia Dickey (Slc. Pink Doll x Sl. Pole-Star) has quickly become a notable breeder of mini-Catts. It flowers twice a year in 3” pots and has sturdy stems holding 2-4 bright red flowers of superior form.  The picture of the first bloom flowers looks like a large, flowered Virginia Dickey, what you see is that the plant is super small

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.
