MM 11-135a is the first photo, and MM 11-135b is the second. This is a very similar cross to MM 11-128, but the results were quite a different. I was hoping for an orange flower with spots. Instead, I got a couple of flowers that look a lot like the seed parent. Could this cross have self-pollinated? Maybe, but they are paler that the parent, so I suspect this is a genuine cross.

There are several more corms from this cross that haven't bloomed yet. I'll will be interested to see if any of them look like MM 11-128.

This plant went from seed to bloom in two years.
