Fredclarkeara Turning Point (0)
Fredclarkeara Turning Point is an orchid hybrid originated by F.Clarke in 2015 and is a cross of Mormodes Lime Tiger x Catasetum expansum.
From 2014, SVO 5047
This is a new Fredclarkeara hybrid. Here we are looking for dark green flowers with darker green stripes, how cool is that? The Mo. Lime Tiger (Cl. Rebecca Northen x Morm. elegans v. alba) is a green flower with green stripes and I believe this color will be a dominant characteristic. It produces 3-4 pendent inflorescence per bulb and is quite showy. The Ctsm. expansum ‘Mindori’ is a dark green almost an olive color, very unusual for the species; it will reinforce the overall flower color and add bloom size to the grex. Flower life will be close to 8 week s as with other breeding of this type.
