    I can't seem to get enough primary hybrids of Phal. finleyi, they're so wild and cute. Here's my collection so far:

    schilleriana x finleyi (Phal. Alyos)

    Thanks! Alyos is my favourite, too.
    No, unfortunately none of them is scented although some of their parents are.

    The Alyos is my favorite too. Did it inherit the varigated leaves of the schilleriana parent?

    Would be nice to pair it with something that made the reflexiveness recessive.

    Yes, it did! Recently a hybrid with stuartiana has made it to vendors' lists and that one has mottled leaves, too.

    Actually, the appendiculata hybrid is more or less planar and the hybrid with javanica, another species with cupped flowers, is similar, judging from pictures. But still you can always tell immediately that it's a finleyi hybrid.

    The upswept petals creates something of an illusion. These hybrids look like they're made for speed. All the proper aerodynamics employed. I had a couple on my mind to use, javanica was one of them. Another was doweryensis for the furthering of spotting but also the substance of the flower.

    I don't know about the US, in Europe there are quite a few crosses for sale, e.g. x equestris, x cornu-cervi, x mariae, x tetraspis etc.
