Plant was stressed, made a keiki and a spike so the flower is real small. I do like the color.

I hope to flower at least one plant out of this cross so that I can try to breed with it further. It maybe a dead end but you never know.

that's okay. 'Anaconda' x DTE is a better hybrid anyway.

That looks like it has good potential for next time around.

FWIW of the 4 I've bloomed, 1 completely opened only twice out of about 6 times blooming. All the flowers blasted before opening very much or within 2-3 days of opening. Of the other 3 only one plant spikes and booms consistently. The other two put up great spikes that never get a bud. Possibly there is just something about the genetics of this cross and it wasn't you. It's a shame because those other two flowers were awesome the only time they bloomed.

I have not bloomed any more. I had 2-3 seedlings left and sold one. The other wants to make keikis and not flowers. #3 almost died but is making a comeback.

Peter sold several flasks. There should be more somewhere. I think maybe CJ bought some from Rob W.

Awesome! Looks like the #2 one I bloomed. I think I had 2 more seedlings of this that just don't want to do anything. Anaconda is an easy and good grower, but I haven't had much luck with its progeny. My (Anaconda x DTE) are awful growers. Do you know if anyone has bloomed any of these?

Frank Smith is the only person that has bloomed this hybrid that I know of.
