Sonoma Urn Company. This is a cross of two unrelated clones. The capsule parent is from my line breeding and the pollen parent is an awarded alba clone with excellent shape from Tom Perlite of Golden Gate Orchids. Both parents test clean for virus, but just to be careful, it was sown from sterilized dry seed so there would be no chance of virus passed from parents. The seedlings in flask are vigorous growers.
