    These are the first two seedlings to bloom of my cross of Dendrobium cyanocentrum x petiolatum.

    Cool color! Especially in the 2nd photo, which shows the transition from bluish to reddish purple.

    Looks like it turned out real well. Too bad hybrids are evil. ;)

    They are both beautiful but the one in the second photo is amazing. It will be nice to see how the others turn out.

    That is why the company name is Mostly Species.

    I have buds on a few more and they all appear to be dark. The light one has a flower that is larger than either of the parents.

    Marni, in what temps are you growing the parents and cross? IOSPE shows that both parents can handle warm.

    I am growing most of them with 65F nights. I only have one in the intermediate that is just opening now. It is not as robust as those in the warm house and the flower seems smaller and darker. But it may still expand. I've grown the Den cyanocentrum in cool, intermediate and warm and it is far better in the warm conditions. I have Den petiolatum in the intermediate house, but may try some seedlings in the warm house to see how they do.

    Very nice cross. I don’t grow too many hybrids, but this would be an exception!

    I only sell flasks from my website. When I have plants to sell I list them on ebay. I don't have any plants of Den. Standing Ovation at this time. You might try In Situ Orchids as he has bought flasks from me. His ebay store is here. If they aren't listed you could send him a message. Good luck. It is a lovely hybrid.
