This is a seedling from one of my crosses that was pollinated in May 2008.
Wow, very nice! What was the cross number? Did it have bicolor parents?
It was #413. I did it before I started doing my own flasking. I had someone else sow it and then I replated some of the flasks I got from him. It was a dark pink by an orange and tangerine bicolor. It is surprising what a variety of colors will come out of a cross. I've done pink by pink and gotten red, orange, red/yellow bicolor, dark pink, light pink out fo the cross. It is very interesting.
Marni, that is truly beautiful, plant and flowers. Congratulations.
Someday, I am going to have to build a cool growing space so I can grow the cool-cold growing miniatures. Sigh....
Stunning and very well grown! Thank you for sharing.
WOW!!! I love the bicolor!
It's always interesting when someone declines to buy a cuth based on the color of the parents. It's not because it is or is not a polyploid but because you're expecting to get an unbloomed seedling and have an expected color?
That is very interesting. Did the siblings of #413 had various color combinations, too?
I've had solid pink, solid red, solid orange and various red/orange bicolors. Some of the red/orange bicolors have had orange petals and the other parts red, one had just the dorsal sepal orange and a bit on the tips of the petals. This one has the most defined coloration of the red/orange bicolors.
I'm really bummed I did not pull the trigger on your last cuthbert flask offering on Ebay. I know you can get the full spectrum of colors from any flask of cuthbert's. I tried twisting Andy's arm today for a perfect pink/white bicolor, to no avail. Probably because he let me have a cherished Dracula, and that was enough of that Nice plant Marni!
