    I bloomed the first out of this cross at about 4.5 years. This one took a lot longer because it hadn't bloomed before I had over 3 years where almost nothing in my collection bloomedl.

    No. The original parent was a 4N from Japan. The owner made a selfing and this is the the original, 'Tomiyama', crossed back on to the selfing.

    Nice. I wish I kept the yellow Sophronitis I’ve had over the years alive. At least to the point I could have bred w them.
