Sarcochilus x Phalaenopsis 2

Jacquie and I had the great pleasure of visiting Jean Ikeson’s greenhouse yesterday. Back in 2011 Jean published a supplement on sarcochilus’ for the AOS and when she spoke at our society on the subject last year, I took the chance to talk to her about my desire to try breeding sarcochilus to phalaenopsis. During our greenhouse visit Jean pulled out this beautiful sarco. The patterns on the front and rear of the petals are fantastic!

With the gift of pollen in hand, I got to work!
