Thanks Julian- how can you tell about the virus? I never even imagined there were pleione viruses, how are they spread? Aphids?

Irregular color blotches on the petals and sepals are an indication and should be considered as suspicious.
the Vectors are multiples, it can be aphids, mites, but also direct contact with an infected plant (leaves rubbing...), water (several pots stayig in the same tray, or droplets projected while watering...), and of course, the most common vectors are growers and their tools...

The Pleione saison is finally starting here with me. Funny that a number of plants open the race which came to me only this winter. My older bulbs are all still in bud.
Sifaka 'Peter Clarke' is a quality flower and a tad more yellow to my eye than in the picture.
The others: Pln. Marco Polo, Ueli Wackernagel 'Regal' and bulbocodioides 'Kunming King'

The 1st one is really nice Steve, not sure it's a pure humilis though as I find the yeloow quite odd for that species.
Would you considere have one set seed?

My own first hybrids
Pleione Hayana (yunnanensis x maculata) and Pleione Hong (aurita x maculata) ,flowered in last December. I wish they had a longer stalk.

Very interesting to see the photos of the parents and hybrid together.
Pleasing results!

Very nice Vigor, I especially like Pln Hong, congratulations.
Did you use a particular clone of maculata? I tried this cross several times without success.

I got my success at the first time of crossing maculata with aurita and yunnanensis. These two crosses resulted very few seeds but fortunately,the seedlings grew vigorously after germination.
It’s known that there is difficulty of crossing maculata with other species, however, I also obtained seedlings of pleionoides x maculata, chunii x maculata, barbarae x maculata ,  and maculata x saxicola, all at the first time of crossing.  It is possible that I used a particular clone, but my clone is nothing special from its appearance.

  It is great to see the parents and the  "child"  pictured together - helps   my understanding for sure.

Hi Wei,
congratulation for your success with both Hong and Hayana. They are nice addition to the group of winter flowering ones. I have done reverse crossing of Hong  (maculata as seed parent) second year out of flask, so I'm interested in differences  ;)

Here are my news of this winter:
P. Viki Tybl (forrestii x preacox)
P. Danuše (humilis x Confirmation)

Sorry Julien, I’ve just seen your post. I think this humilis clone falls within the variability of the species. Sadly the flowers have now gone over so no seed capsule this year.

Well, too bad... will be for another time ;)
I'm trying to find seeds from the species to try to build healthy stock (my logic being that if a seedpod is contaminated, then there would need to test only a few plants from the batch to know that the whole batch should go to the trash)

Pleione forrestii -“normal” and semi-alba forms. Later flowering this year due to the cold Spring (quite a few aborted their flower buds as did my albiflora).

Lovely forrestii Steve; mine are still a week or two off opening.
