Anders, color looks to be too pale to be a Norton's indigo. What are its parents?

I have became very discouraged recently that so called indigo Phal violacea imported from Taiwan have been bred with other Phal violacea that are not true.

At the moment I hope this new group F680 from my friend Su Wei-Ren will bloom true. I was pleased with my last group of F320 Phal violacea (violacea (Indigo) X violacea (red)) from Wu Wei-Ren - that they are nice. Most of them are magenta red. But few turned out to be true indigo.

Bryan Goddard has good Phal violacea indigo from the Nortons. True indigo from the Nortons have been inbred for so long that they are not fast growing. So we are on the lookout for vigorous Phal violacea seedlings that grow and bloom freely.

the parents are supposed to be coerulea x indigo, but i don't have a clue where and who made the cross, it's the first flowers on that plant, but i just assumed that the indigo was from the norton line when i bought it.

for me it doesn't matter that much, where the cross was made, as long as the flower is pretty in color and has nice form. i just wanted to know if it was dark enough to be called indigo( but i didn't think so)...

i have a couple of violacea's from joseph wu, 2 of them are supposed to be indigo, but i don't know for sure untill they bloom, which could take a while :lol:

at least i stopped unwillingly killing of parts of my vioalcea collection after spring hit denmark i may, but the two LD145 from joseph are really slow to do anything at all, i had them since april and they just started growing new roots a week ago...

i thought inbreeding stuff to long was a bad thing?
