Phalaenopsis gigantea x bellina "Blue" flask

January 2010 update: The seedlings are not doing well! (click here for an update).

I received this flask of Phalaenopsis gigantea x P. bellina "Blue" from an orchid friend today via courier. However, our national courier, Pos Laju apparently do not care for "Fragile" nor "This Way Up!" signs. They deliver in one day but I'd never use them again for flasks!

The bottom of the flask:

Had no choice but to deflask and pot the seedlings right away. I got about 20 good-sized plantlets and two tightly growing "balls" of single leaf protocorms. Hope they grow well as I think this is quite a nice cross.

I found this similar cross here (click).

Very pretty! Can't wait to see the results!

@ayin, I got this from a friend, think he bought it from a nursery, don't really remember sorry.
