I see more influence from [Blue (Wide Petals)] in this one and I love that.

Awesome.

Edit: Peter -- it looks like it is in the original pot; is this so, or did you repot it last year? In any event, super congratulations -- from what I have seen, this is the best of the cross so far. Also in this edit, is pollen from this already causing a pod to swell on either a back-cross to [Blue (Wide Petals)] or a sib? :D :D :D

Sorry guys -- I just realized that I posted this on the wrong part of the F17-xx thread. Please forgive the duplication...

The flower on the left looks small, but that is just because the one on the right is quite large for a baby plant (a teeny bit larger than 5 cm.). This out-cross continues to excite me.

The flower on the left has rounded sepal/petal tips and strong, but clearly delineated color; the flower on the right is my second one from this cross to have "up-swept" petals, which I like since it gives the flower a "strong," bold stance.

Neither are in the same league as the one Peter posted just above here, but that's kind-of my point: these two are still worth keeping to see for another year or two. I keep thinking I will flower some from this cross that I can give as "house-warming" gifts or whatever; more than a year after flowering my first one, I am still waiting for a "cull." Hasn't happened yet! My largest flower (#3 in the photo, 6cm.) is now making its tenth (10th) bud on the original spike -- is has been in either flower or bud since the first spike started. Not that surprising for a well-established plant of 'Ponkan', but this is happening on this plants' first spike as a seedling. Bravo again, Peter.

F1706 Season is upon us.

Here is another youngun'. As usual, taken with a camera phone in a blistering hurry -- it is quite more impressive in person. Congrats, yet again, Peter.
