Breeding yellow and red tetraploid

Post by peterlin » Sun Mar 31, 2019 9:51 am

Found this Phalaenopsis Golden Bells 'Mistral's Golden Splash' HCC/AOS flowering. This is a chance 4n hybrid registered by HP Norton in 1988. Parents are Phal Golden Sand 'Canary' FCC/AOS (3n) x Phalaenopsis venosa (2n)

Alas AOS does not have a photo record of 'Mistral's Golden Splash'. At time of award it had 5 flowers 3 bud on 1 inflorescence. Flower measures 7.6 x 8.1 cm.

I have seen this flower bloomed better before but plant is not doing its best at the moment.

It would be interesting to pair this with best non-fading yellow Phalaenopsis Sogo Shito (about 8 cm) that I have right now. So we will see if this match is successful 4 months from now.

We have larger yellow phalaenopsis with standard type form. However, these flowers will last for months but their color will fade. I like Phal Sogo Shito better because color fades to more yellow as flower age.

So taking a break from breeding with Phalaenopsis Dragon Tree Eagle and the like, working on these larger not as fragrant 4n type.

Peter doth say:

"So taking a break from breeding with Phalaenopsis Dragon Tree Eagle and the like, working on these larger not as fragrant 4n type."

Me say, if anyone can figure out how to make fragrant 4n's, you will, Peter. In time; all in good time.
