P. rothschildianum is called the King of Orchids for good reason. Few, if any, other orchid flowers match its striking form and beauty, so it is no surprise that this species has received more FCC awards than any other species.

 

This is a roth cross that is not very common, but very respectable nevertheless. Both 'Eureka' and 'Noyo' are thought to be wild-collected. 'Noyo' also had a somewhat large flower when awarded, 30 cm, which puts it in the range of some of the more recent roth crosses.

 

We have not flowered out any of this cross yet, but we have high hopes! One distinctive feature of this cross compared to other roths is its thick, fleshy leaves. All of our clones seem to exhibit this trait, and it will be interesting if the underlying genetics causing these thicker, waxier leaves contribute to more substance in the resulting flower.
