So many great pictures! I'm looking forward to many more as seedlings from this cross come into bloom. Just wondering, has anyone else on this forum bloomed a coerulea bellina from this cross?

[Here is a better photo of the one I posted earlier today...first photo was too early in the morning and the green did not show up correctly...this new photo is only edited for size for the Forum … no editing in color...it really does have a lot of green in it. This is the second flower on this particular spike.]

Same here, thetoetle. It is wonderful that we've seen this level of quality in so high a percentage...and to know that most of the cross is yet to flower. I haven't flowered anything coerulea yet. I'm sure someone(s) will sib this strain and then we can have all this fun all over again...but surely with a good number of blues. Here is another F1706; what does not come through in our photos is how floriferous these are for first-bloomers and how vigorous they are over-all, especially relative to some other strains we have had to fuss with in the past just to keep them alive.

Thank you Walton. I am planning to keep a dozen of this group to see which I like better next season. And yes, it would be fun to do a sib cross to get some coerulea color to come out. I have the mother coerulea fat petals flowering soon so I can back cross to it as well.

Here are couple casual photos I took from yesterday

Coerulea color is hard to photograph. It looks better in low light - not under the afternoon sun. This is SG357 Phalaenopsis bellina from Jia-Ho Orchids on the left and F1706 Phalaenopsis bellina 180725 on the right.

I like this F1706 Phalaenopsis bellina 180725 for its color. Form is not as round as the next one

Hallelujah! Sib cross; back-cross -- whichever, I would like to place an advance order for 100,000 seedlings in flask (I will also have to get a good paying job, move to a place that is not frequently smacked by hurricanes, and have an actual greenhouse, but it would be worth it!).

Comparing here bellina 'KF#1' with one of Peter's F1706 that I really like. This F1706 is not huge, nor nearly as full as some, but it somehow keeps making me wander to my light stand to enjoy it nonetheless. I have one F1706 that is much fuller, much larger (6cm natural spread), but I like this one more.

Here is a new one that I'm keeping to breed or to flower again. It looks like pod parent Phal bellina 'Joy' AM/AOS

Yep, "the 'hits' just keep on coming!" To think that bellina season isn't even over yet...we may see more photos here yet...

Now fully open after 5 days. More full in person than the phone camera seems to want to capture. Love this one, Peter. Out of all my plants, as Orchids do go normally...it has some mites! From my F1706 batch, this is of course the only one with any problem. I treated it -- thoroughly -- this morning with Tetrasan, which has not failed me yet. Keep fingers crossed! :D :D

Thank you Walton for sharing.

Ben Belton also bloomed out a nice one.

Beautiful and so much "character;" beautifully grown, also. Contratulations.

This is from Peter's F1706 sib. The color is not blue-ish -- that is the artificial light monkeying with the color; it is normal colored. What looks like incurving on the tops of the petals has since flattened out after the photo was taken.

I'm glad Peter got another shipment of these in. Pretty sure he still has some to sell.

Update on one of Peter's F1706. I keep waiting for this one to put out a new leaf and stop flowering so I can repot it, but it just keeps pumping out a new bud everytime I think it's finally going into "grow" mode.

Thanks again for a great cross, Peter. Any news about a sib or backcross? :D :D :D
