Thanks Steve,
It is a little better in real life than in the photo but not as good as your yellow lip. You have some excellent variations - not just the grandifloras either.
You asked a little while ago if anyone had a photo of grandiflora 'red lip'. I got mine from David at Koolplants and think he should have a photo. Sadly the bulb did not make it to flowering size.

I bought the first Pleione as P. forrestii but it isn,t.



The second Pleione is an un-named one from the local garden centre.



Most of these are the same variety but I don,t know which. They usually have two flower stems.

Steve,

Wonderful grandifloras! A good yellow grandiflora like that is something I’ve been looking for for some time - can I ask where you got it?

Thanks Alex!
The Yellow grandiflora came from Rainer Kretz.

Thanks very much, Steve. I actually did have that from him but it turned out to be virused 🤬

No signs of virus in the flowers (there is a single growth with two flowers). I’ll check the leaf when in growth.

In mine, the bud sheath looked suspicious and then the leaf had a classic mosaic pattern - a great shame.

Hi Maggi,
   Thanks for your kind words… Most of the collection was untouched by Mr Rat.. But under such circumstances one does rather focus on the losses...   Here are a few happier pans:

P. Follifoot ‘Princess Tiger’ One of Dad’s favourites, but to my mind an untidy flowerer. He was 91 last week.
P. Vesuvius ‘Ember’ Less floriferous, but bigger flowers, better placed and clean colours.
P. formosana ‘H8.1’ Don’t recall seeing many formosanas on here… This one is a cross between two whites.
P. formosana ‘Claire’
P. Ueli Wackernagel H169.1  Possibly the best looking pan yesterday. Just on account of the flower size.

Well, I could be commenting on the lovely pleiones - but I prefer to concentrate on asking you to pass on my very best wishes to your  Father -  congratulations on reaching a great age - long  may he reign!

Four more from yesterday:

P. Shantung ‘Ducat’ Always does well for me.
P. Harlequin ‘Clown’ I like the white tipped petals on this one
P. Marco Polo ‘168.3’ I do like well held flowers. You might notice the chitting spuds behind… I really should be planting those, not messing about with photos!
P. Stromboli ‘Il Duce’ The darkest flower out at the moment. It's stems seem shorter than usual this year.

Apart from medical/health stuff which always jumps to the top of the queue… gardening also has to take its place behind family…. I got married five weeks ago……..

Must fix the lawn mower next.

Sorry to bring up the V-topic again. Closer examination of the last approximately 15 pictures of Pleiones (not the white/yellow ones) show some degree of color breaks and uneven coloration for many of them. The signs vary from very blotched in some of Grahams’ x Barbarae to no visible signs in Lucs’ Red Colobus. Pretty much the same variation  in my greenhouse. Do we think most of them are virused? Has anyone tried the Agdia test kit for orchid viruses?
