Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.
Tokyo Magic (Lc. Irene Finney x L. briegeri) has yellow flowers with a red lip it is a great breeder that has produced many successful hybrids. Tokyo Magic imparts good shape, strong stems, and a compact plant habit. Kyoguchi (Enc. aromatica x Gur. aurantiaca) blooms with branched inflorescences holding over 60 bright-yellow fragrant flowers with yellow lips striped in red. Hybrids with Kyoguchi have a distinctive charm, the plants are compact growers, with branched inflorescences of many yellow flowers with red lips. Do I dare suggest that some plants will have a fragrance? We will need to see a few plants flower to be sure!
Imported Seedling from Sunset Valley Orchids, USA. The picture shows the parent of this cross. The above description was written by Fred Clarke and details the expectation of this hybrid.
