S. 'Oliver Twist' (S. 'Leah Wilkerson' x leucophylla 'Hot Pink')
Cross by Wes Buckner
Grown from seed and selected by Phil Faulisi
As in many cases, photos do no justice to the actual real live experience of seeing the actual plant. This moorei has some very beautiful features as well. The hood is brilliant white with crisp red veining. The white shimmers like pearl metallic. The throat blotch consists of numerous shades of red, pink and purple, spilling on to the lip with additional colors of green and lime ...... as though the victim of a paintball fight. Spring traps are dainty with minimal white drop, yet still give a glimpse of what's to come in the fall. Erect growth all season .... never floppy, gives a compact, tidy look all season long. Fall traps are spectacular and worth the wait.
I've had this plant since late winter 2016 and it's currently trying to bust open the gallon pot its growing in with 6 or 7 growth points. If you grow this clone, please feel free to post pics and growth experiences here.
Spring traps are dainty with less flair than the fall crop. May 2017
