Really wonderful, Dan. Do you know the name of that one with the dark veins?

Btw, you don't really need to start a new thread every time you want to post more pictures. Just continue to post on the original thread and once we reply, we will keep coming back to look.

Elaine, thanks for the info, I will be loading more as they come into bloom.
As for the striped one, that is a brug that I just registered. Its' name is Miss Edith Winnette, named after my mom. The cross is El Dorado x Archangel. It is a fast grower, sets mega-blooms, and has a fragrance of El Dorado + a cherry undertone. Really a great all around plant. Hopefully, there will be a very few cuttings available this fall if things go well. Here are pics of the whole plant, it seems to always have blooms, as opposed to flushes. I like that about it.

Dan, do you keep them in small pots all year? Does it encourage blooms?

Good morning, I love how the blooms are more outward than straight down. Stunning!

Smaller pots seem to make hem bloom faster, but the downside is that you have to water them much more often. I grow my seedling in 1 gallon pots till they get top heavy and fall over, then into at least 5 gallon pots.

Is that a seedling of yours, Dan? One of my favorites was Creamsicle. Someday I want to add a small GH for my tropicals. I love EEs, canna, calla, and brugs. Just hard work dealing with those that are not from a zone 6 area.

Yes, it is a cross of El Dorado x Archangel. I can truthfully say that El Dorado (JTs' creation ) is the best pod and pollen parent that I have found so far. Makes some great babies !!! Archangel is by Alice Harris, another fine hybridizer.
