Goto Commentary

An easy to grow, great coloured orchid with a good lip:

Den Starsheen 'Botanic Fireworks' x Jesmond Sparkler 'Greg Hall' 

 

Great for the general Orchid Grower or Pot Plant Trade that is looking for an easy to grow, reasonable shape and pretty orchid.  

However, for the serious grower, the weak inflorescence and low flower count (3) may prove problematic.  Additionally, the complexity of the hybrid and the small percentage of speciosum may also be of concern.

Future

Due to the attractiveness of the flower colour it will be retained in the collection to provide colour for future Goto Displays or simply to look at.  Grown on to a specimen Orchid it should look great, but, a Champion?
