Parentage Phalaenopsis Sogo Shito X Phalaenopsis Pylo's Flame 'A1'
These are seed grown. We paired a non-fading yellow phalaenopsis that gets better with age, with our best deep orange red flower. We are expecting red to yellow red marking flowers. These are seed grown. Expect each flower to look different. Some will look like pod parent, some will look like pollen parent, and some will be in between.
First flower to open is yellow with red markings up to 4 flowers. Larger more mature 2nd year flowering plant should have 2 spikes with more flowers.
8-10 inch leaf span, planted in 2.5 inch pot. About 3-6 months to flower.
There is also a reverse cross, sku F2116, where Phalaenopsis Pylo's Flame 'A1' is the pod parent and Phal. Sogo Shito is the pollen parent.
We named the orchid after our dear friend Katie Richardson who bravely fought Cystic Fibrosis all her life and passed away in March 2020 at the age of 54. She was a fiercely loyal TCU Horned Frogs fan and a forever friend. We hope that her memory lives on through the beauty of this flower and that it brings awareness to CF and those still fighting the disease.
