Those are some very exciting combinations! Is that LVB’s red or yellow form?
I'll admit I'm a little fuzzy on how many clones are running around from this grex, but this is definitely at least a
red form. My cutting has only produced red/white peristomes but the mother plant it came from has flushed all the way to having a deep pink body.
I got some interesting close-ups of the developing pollen - in the first photo there is an unripe flower on top, and a ripe one on the bottom. In the second, there are two fluffy, ripe flowers on top with one that is (I presume) starting to go bad.
Some opening female flowers directly post-pollination last week.
And this is how the female flower looked right before we left for a weekend trip - almost all the way opened. I have a lot more pollinating to do again now!
