Default C. aurantiaca hybrid

This is a cross of (C. forbesii x L. milleri) x C. aurantiaca. The offspring came in all colours from white to rose, yellow, red, red with yellow, white with rose. I picked the red variety from the nursery bench. It is a vigorous healthy grower and very temperature tolerant. For dark red long lasting flowers in february a place with bright light and nights of 10 - 12 degrees of Celsius is best.
