Chris Larson ... "My best flowering of this hybrid, yet. Although malfunctioning vent a couple of months ago caused stress in the form of yellow leaves. However the plants are bigger and the spike is bigger this time.
This one is from Dan Kinnard in the USA, via Bob Hudson. Un-registered."
Pamela Koide Hyatt ... "Hi Chris. This is most likely T. Scarlet Fountain"
