[ Orchid (Cymbidium erythraeum 'Lois') | Posted on October 18, 2017 ]

This is a known alba form of the species.

[ Orchid (Cymbidium erythrostylum 'Blumen Insel') | Posted on October 18, 2017 ]

This is a diploid alba clone of the species and has been selfed, so is known to be fertile.

[ Orchid (Cymbidium tracyanum 'Tetra Royale') | Posted on October 18, 2017 ]

Another tetraploid (4N) clone of the species owned by Royale Orchids in NSW, Australia.

[ Ivory-Colored Cymbidium (Cymbidium eburneum 'Darch') | Posted on October 18, 2017 ]

This plant is one of Ezi-Gro's diploid breeding plants.

[ Devon's Cymbidium (Cymbidium devonianum 'His & Hers') | Posted on October 18, 2017 ]

This is a known diploid (2N) and was used by New Horizon Orchids to make a triploid version of Cym. Devon Eruption.

[ Orchid (Cymbidium Sweet Eruption 'New Horizon') | Posted on October 18, 2017 ]

This plant is a known tetraploid (4N).

[ Orchid (Cymbidium Valerie Absolonova 'Ruby Lip') | Posted on October 17, 2017 ]

This is almost certainly a triploid from the Milton Carpenter strain and is offerred by Lyttle Orchid Clones here in Australia. The seller describes it as having some warmth tolerance.

[ Orchid (Cymbidium Happy Lambert 'Torch') | Posted on October 16, 2017 ]

This plant is a known diploid.

[ Orchid (Cymbidium Happy Lambert 'Firefall') | Posted on October 16, 2017 ]

This plant is a known diploid.

[ Orchid (Cymbidium Templestowe's Charm 'Julie') | Posted on October 13, 2017 ]

First public showing was the Cymbidium Orchid Society of Victoria (COSV) Spring Show in September 2017. This was from a remake of the grex, not the original crossing some 10 years earlier.

[ Orchid (Cymbidium Templestowe's Charm 'Nicole') | Posted on October 13, 2017 ]

First public showing was the Cymbidium Orchid Society of Victoria (COSV) Spring Show in September 2017.

[ Orchid (Cymbidium tracyanum 'New Start') | Posted on October 12, 2017 ]

This is a known tetraploid owned by Royale Orchids (NSW, Australia) that is descended from Andy Easton's tracyanum lines.

[ Orchid (Cymbidium Death Wish) | Posted on October 12, 2017 ]

This grex and its offspring (i.e. Orchid (Cymbidium Arachnid)) seem more susceptible to frosts than most cool-growing Cymbidiums. A number of members of the Cymbidium Orchid Society of Victoria had plants damaged by a -1°C frost during this recent winter.

[ Splendid Cymbidium (Cymbidium insigne) | Posted on October 11, 2017 ]

It is worth noting that there are actually several white forms of this species. The first, often referred to as Cym. insigne var. album, is white but is not actually a true alba (i.e. it still produces anthocyanins).

A true alba (which despite the bad Latin is usually referred to as "insigne alba" to differentiate itself from the earlier white strain) has been in use for several decades and more recently, another alba form has been discovered in the wild and may be introduced into cultivation.

[ Orchid (Cymbidium Diane De Langhe) | Posted on October 7, 2017 ]

The hybridiser, Andy Easton, describes this grex as effectively being a miniature and better Cym. tracyanum, as the plants are smaller and the blooms last approximately twice as long as the species whilst maintaining a shape similar to that of tracyanum. All plants originating from the original NHO cross were tetraploid albas.

[ Orchid (Calanthe 'Kojima Green') | Posted on October 6, 2017 ]

This is an unregistered hybrid created by Japanese hybridiser Mr. Kojima. Parentage is unknown.

[ Orchid (Calanthe 'Kojima Pink') | Posted on October 6, 2017 ]

This is an unregistered hybrid created by Japanese hybridiser Mr. Kojima. Parentage is unknown.

[ Orchid (Calanthe 'Kojima Purple') | Posted on October 6, 2017 ]

This is an unregistered hybrid created by Japanese hybridiser Mr. Kojima. Parentage is unknown.

[ Orchid (Calanthe 'Kojima White') | Posted on October 6, 2017 ]

This is an unregistered hybrid created by Japanese hybridiser Mr. Kojima. Parentage is unknown.

[ Orchid (Calanthe 'Kojima Yellow') | Posted on October 6, 2017 ]

This is an unregistered hybrid created by Japanese hybridiser Mr. Kojima. Parentage is unknown.
