Welcome to my 2021 GROW BLOG for the

 

Cycnodes NoID ( Cyc. Richard Brandon 'Xtra Wide Petals' x Morm. Exotic Treat 'SVO' AM/AOS )


Here we are on different path, in fact a new path. This is the first intergeneric hybrid using complex hybrids of Cycnoches and Mormodes. Richard Brandon (warscewiczii x Jean E. Monnier) produces robust-growing, easy-to-bloom plants. The cultivar ‘Xtra Wide Petals’ has the highest-quality well-shaped flowers seen from any Richard Brandon, and it is becoming an important parent in our breeding program. This Exotic Treat (sinuata x tuxtlensis) has amazing color, with bright orange-yellow flowers and bold burgundy spotting. As a bonus, mature plants can produce 3-4 flower stems at a time. We know from experience that this type of breeding combines the best qualities from both parents: the Cycnoches is dominant for shape, and the Mormodes is dominant for color.  I am very anxious to see these bloom! The expectation is for well-shaped yellow to bronze flowers with bold burgundy spotting. ( - Fred Clarke, Sunset Valley Orchids )
