    I can't see enought to tell and was wondering what the foliage is like. How big are the flowers? It looks very interesting.

    Interesting cross! Is the fragrance pleasant like leonis or less sweet like sesquipedale? I wonder if the plant is much larger than leonis.

    The flowers are 12cm large and the leaves are 30cm long and are leonis like, as you can see on this photo.
    I give it more light than I give to my A.sesquipedale, but less than A.leonis!!

    What a neat combination. The leonis leaf structure seems to carry through to its progeny -- I have several primary hybrids with leonis and they all have at least something of the leonis leaf. I haven't ever seen this one before -- very, very cool.
