    Another clone from the Magenta Magic cross. This is a taller clone and with peachy luminescent flowers. The comparison shot has a compot of Dendrobium cuthbertsonii in the foreground, and a large magenta flowered clone of Magenta Magic on the right.

    Daniel, I'll give it a try. I've done something like 30 attempts with this cross, and haven't gotten a capsule yet.

    Can't help thinking its glomeratum x cuthbertsonii, not Magenta Magic. What I purchased many years ago as D. Magenta Magic, obviously isn't either, its probably chrysopterum x cuthbertsonii...I never managed to set a goldschmidtianum x cuthbertsonii pod, I fell this hybrid has never been really made.

    Whatever it is, its a beauty :)

    I think what was done was that both glomeratum and goldschmidtianum pollen were used to set the pod; just a guess of mine. About half the seedlings look like a glomeratum cross, blooming months later than the other seedlings that look like a goldschmidtianum cross. I don't have any pictures of the other phenotype as they aren't very striking.

    goldschmidtianum is supposed to have been used as a pod parent, not a pollen parent! so, the "mistake" can't have its origin in a pollen mix. Too bad you have no picture of what you suppose really is myiakei x cuth, I'd like to see that!

    Lovely color! Where did you acquire this cross originally?

    I got these from Blaine Maynor from Orchids for the People. He got the flask from Gerardus Staal.
