    Not what I would have imagined from the two. How big are the flowers?

    It's quite a large bloom, about 2.5" across tip to tip. I'm somewhat less excited about the lip compared to the parent species, but overall I find the flower shape pleasing

    Interesting shape and color. Eye-catching. Is this a cross you made?

    I can see the two, but not how I would guess either.

    Kelly - no, I think it was made in Europe based upon the photo trail I've seen online. I got this one from Paramount in BC.

    Hi Piotr - why do you doubt the tobaense parentage? I've only seen 2 other primary hybrids with tobaense as a pollen parent (tobaense x formosum, and tobaense x cruentum) and like this cross, the hybrids have all lost the tobaense lip feature, but instead show slight lip elongation and reddening of the markings.
