On offer is a new release seedling of the Native Dendrobium Orchid, D. Aussie Ira, from the crossing of D. Ellen ‘Spots’ x tetragonum ‘BJL Red Lip’.
Established in a 40mm square tube, this is a remake of an older hybrid not commonly available today. ‘Spots’ is an unusually spotty Ellen, most likely using tetragonum v tetragonum, and features a nice broad labellum. ‘BJL Red Lip’ is an intervarietal tetragonum, with strong, dark markings in the segments, and a deep red/purple labellum. Hoping to combine the spots and stripes to see some new patterns emerge, and a good percentage with the dark red/purple labellum come through.
All photographs show flower images indicative of the two parents and a typical example of the seedlings on offer.
