Okay, this hybrid isn't exactly using 'Coffee' or 'Jiaho Coffee' of Phalaenopsis speciosa.

This is from Mituo Orchids looking to make blue color.

AM669 Phal (speciosa X Mituo Prince 'Blue')

Mr Chen of Mituo Orchids said he used the red flower of Phal speciosa

I like the bluish lip - but the rest of the flower is 'coffee'

speciosa looks more and more, every year, like the "White Wizard" of the Hobbit movies, stirring a Cauldron of genes over an open flame and producing the unexpected...frequently. Ah, so much fun to come! Eye of newt, wing of bat, pollen from speciosa … sounds like a good recipe for breeding to me :lol: :lol: :lol:
