    Masdevallia Fandango (Copper Angel x Monarch)

    A select division from the Orchid Zone. All the awarded clones I can reference are described as being clearly M. veitchiana hybrids in colors and markings. This clone is obviously concolor yellow, and the minute purple hairs are absent. In terms of size, these flowers are at least comparable to the awarded clones.

    Regards,
    Rick

    Nice color. I would assume that this plant is a desirable clone for breeding, right?

    Duke,

    I'm not sure if a xanthic clone is necessarily a good breeder. There is only one registered hybrid of Fandango, and I would guess it was made with the normally colored one. This plant has no clonal name on it, so I assume it never was used for breeding.

    Regards,
    Rick

    Rick, I thought I just read something about making clear yellow masdevallia hybrids, maybe in the newest Orchid Digest. You might have struck gold here...get it
