Tell us, if you will please, something about the parents. I second Bob's notion about your plant's charisma. Is it part "jungle" type? Loads of character, in any event. Can't wait to see more of your pictures.

Thank you Bob and Walton :-) i don't know much about the parents, but Paul Lippold one of the parents breeder prefered the star shaped form. I know some of the other plants of this cross and they are rounder. I also have a sister of this plant and she is also more round (i will show a pic when she is in bloom). So i think the plant from the pic above is the "wildest kid" in this family :lol:

(I hope my english is not to terrible - i'm still working to get better :oops: )


Many greetings from Germany,

Julia

The "wild type" is from Peter. This is its best shape yet in terms of balance. First bloom was very nearly 3" VNS and it seems to want to flower all the time. I think this was the C 403 strain from Peter.

The second one is 'Crystelle', and I have a question please: that little stripe of color on the right-hand side of the photo. This stripe was also on the immediate previous flower, but it had no stripes on last year's flowering. I am growing it in nearly Cattleya level light with 15+ hour daylength. I have another plant, LDBK 'YK-14' that is also showing the same little, straight stripes on most of its six flowers; none of the flowers it has made before ever had a single stripe (and it is one heckuva floriferous cultivar, so I've seen enough previous flowers to wonder it this is a light issue...). Any thoughts/suggestions would be appreciated.

Best to all,
Walton

Best to all,

This is ('Select #4' x 'Marley #1'). Peter recently offered a much more round one on eBay, but I mention this one here to reiterate the vigor of this strain. Great roots and good, strong, thick leaves. Plus, it is "new blood" to the 'Country Acres' and 'Bonsall' lines.

Thanks, Randy. I have two plants from this cross ('Select #4' x 'Marley #1') and both remind me of 'Krull's Perfection' in their vigor. Perhaps destined for shallow 10" basket culture, which I do not consider lightly, growing as I do entirely under lights -- that's a mighty lot of space but hey, if they command it, they've earned it. The one in the photo was intended to be a sample plant for a Cattleya customer of mine who wants to get into selling novelty Phals also (that's why I got this plant from Peter in the first place...), but if it keeps grabbing at my attention, I may have to find another larger plant for my customer's sample plant!

Beautiful; how long had the bellina been open when the photograph was taken?

New F1706 from Peter's breeding. First bloomer with two spikes, one of which tried to branch but the branch stalled (probably a good thing). 5cm horizontal natural spread. The posture on the petals slumped a bit later in our Florida heat, but the color is still strong. Congrats again, Peter...

From Peter's F1706 sib cross. Color looks blue-ish in this photo, but that is just the artificial lights causing that -- the actual color is normal. The incurving on the tops of the petals leveled out after the photo was taken. Bravo, Sir Peter of Texas.
