Hybrid seedling in a 50mm pot. Leaf length <10cm.
This is the first Zygo cross of our own breeding to be offered for sale. And it’s a sibling cross! I have written about the importance of sibling crosses in the development of Sarcochilus. It refines the traits and intensifies the good and bad of a cross. This combination is looking to build stability into the large purple lipped, spotted green flowers. These are robust growing parents that spike twice a year.
