Orchid Cross Parents
(Phal. equestris "Sapphire's Surprise" x Phal. equestris var cyanochilus 'Martel's Blue')


We call this the "Blue Too" Strain because "Sapphire's Surprise" was (Three Times A Lady' X 'Blue Too').  "Blue Too" was a typical equestris var cyanochilus type.  I had know idea if this cross would produce any coeruleas.  I ended up with amazing results and the award winning 'Violet Eyes' CHM/AOS came out of this cross.

Divisions of both "Violet Eyes" and "Baby Step Blues" pictured below are available in our store.
