    I have found both parents of this grex (particularly insigne) susceptible to rot, so it is unsurprising that this grex as well can be susceptible to rot. Unfortunately, despite my best efforts, I lost my plant to rot shortly after the flowering season. I suspect the mild and wet 2020-2021 summer, followed by an early and wet spring in 2021, contributed to this.
