A most unusual pair of clones this is; bicolor petals, but with the color fading in an almost mottled, stained look that has never stuck around in any other plant I've seen so far, and veins from emarginata only just barely sticking in the background color

This second one especially, is far paler than I expected from either parent

Also getting cyclosecta blooming again! This flower failed after pollination was attempted (though the pollen from it did make 2 successful crosses with other plants), but a 2nd bloom is looking more promising now

And esseriana is finally looking decent again

Turns out cyclosecta doesn't like setting seeds though...crosses with it as the pollen parent are fine, but all its stalks just wilt after the flower falls.

Got a moctezumae flower! It's not perfect, but hey...and, crossed it both ways with emarginata, and it lasted long enough that I was able to put pollen on cyclosecta (we'll see if this stalk holds on or not...) and "ANPA A." Can't wait to see the results...

It also made a couple bifurcated leaves.

And, some new arrivals from the start of the week, all with so much potential

Mystery freebie dude; label said gigantea, obviously not. I suspect another gypsicola...
