Phal Pylo's Red Sun
(Orchidview Tabasco #1 X Mituo Sun Queen)

Despite of complex parentage, this hybrid has yield high germination.

First one to bloom is red color on a small plant.

Hi Peter
Glad you are breeding with OVT#1
A little background; this was a select seedling I purchased from Terry at Pine Ridge orchids in 2009. It was his largest and most robust from the original cross from the Nortons. It is a great breeder and gives tons of seed and for me has grown many vigorous seedlings. It imparts all shades of dark yellow/orange/red from the Krull's Red Hot and Katie Morris background.
The color of this first bloom seedling is great - I expect far superior seedlings (shape) to come from this cross, with lots of interesting color variation from both parents.
Is it fragrant? (from the pollen parent, as OVT#1 is not)
Mark

Thank you Mark. This cross was made in 2013. With so much going on, 3 years ago seems like a long time to me. My first bloom plant is small - I hope to bloom more from this hybrid. I did not get to smell this flower before it was wilted. I hope it is because pollen parent is fragrant.

Ha! I start feeling an urgency when some of the leaves start to turn yellow.

This is shared with me by Peter Ansdell (oldphals here)

Quote:
As expected my plants from the flask I shared with you took longer to bloom because of my growing conditions. Most will not bloom until next year, but this example is the first to open on a very vigorous plant.
The actual color, which is perfectly uniform is a slightly darker raspberry very difficult to photograph, but this is close. The flower is very large, more than 6 centimeters across, with a different petal shape to Pylo's Red. It is very shiny and waxy, but so heavy the stem cannot hold it upright.
Only a very slight fragrance, but temperatures are unusually low here and my growing area is only in the low 70s...maybe when the weather warms up.

I like the ridged pattern and color. Maybe I will bloom one someday, but mine are terribly neglected.

You and me both. The seedlings I kept were doing well then I got busy.

It is all a question of temperature! In last couple of days my growing temperatures have touched 80 and my example of this cross, as shown earlier by Peter Lin has a rich but not particularly strong fragrance. For that you need Java Gem which is almost overwhelmingly fragrant.

Here's is a second to flower from the same flask. A little different, but the red parent seems to have the upper hand again. I like them both but still have a few left to flower next year; hopefully they will show more of the other parent.
