C. harrisoniana first bloom seedling! Male
Default C. harrisoniana first bloom seedling!

First bloom seedling. Cross between C. harrisoniana "Volcano Queen' AM/AOS x C. harrisoniana 'Mem Robert


What do you guys/gals think? I had purchaced a few seedlings and this the first to bloom. Worth keeping? I am really trying to thin the herd and keep only the best (my wife says too many plants)

thanks
micah

Default sorry typo

It's not really a 'cross'. Just the two harrisoniana parents as listed; Volcano queen x mem robert straight. pure species

I love the form, with all the petals and sepals evenly curled back. It's beautiful- great growing! I'd keep it for sure!
What will you do when you thin the collection? You could sell on here.

Nice flowers.

A cross would be a manmade pollination which it is. A sib would be a cross between 2 offspring of the same parents.

If it's the first to bloom I would keep it. Maybe is a good bloomer The shape is not bad and I know it can improve with time. So, good luck!
