So far as I know, there has only been 4 totally Albino var. speciosums ever found. It has been my good fortune to have discovered 3 of them. And now I have crossed some of them with each other. It doesn’t guarantee you an albino result but the chances must be hugely higher. Many of them will turn out Albino. Get them while you can.

97 Albino (pod) x Lyrebird . .  Albino x Albino var. speciosums

The pod parent here is a magnificent pure Albino from the NSW Central Coast. It has a very upright habit of raceme with perfect arrangement as well. It has tall, large flowers of excellent shape. Lyrebird is totally stunning and is whiter than white to use an expression. A much more rounded flower with a gentle arching habit of raceme. Size and shape are wonderful. See pics in the Gallery under Parents Pics, var. speciosum.

Lyrebird (pod) x 97 Albino . .  Albino x Albino var. speciosums

The Reverse of AAA, I figured it would be wise to cross the two albinos each way with the pod parent. Some growers and breeders suggest that a particular pod parent will give a different result then the same cross but with the pod on the opposite parent. It’s called insurance! See pics in the Gallery under Parents Pics, var. speciosum. Compare the pics of each parent and see which one you like the best. It is about an equal split I think. Each parent is distinct in its own way; but both are the purest of pure white albino.

As Gold as Gold can be!!!!Pics are in the Gallery under Parent pics.
Var. blackdownense Bonanza X Windermere x Mt Larcom Gold   EldoradoBonanza is the very best coloured blackdownense I have ever seen. Shape is magnificent. All this is on a dwarf plant. But there is nothing small about the quality of this speciosum. Made in Heaven!  There have been a lot of Mt Larcom Gold x Windermere flowered over the past decades. Some have been very good, some not so good. But Eldorado is, I swear, the finest speciosum in my bush house. My own opinion is that it is of FCC standard. It’s a product from the breeding of Sid Batchelor of Yondi Orchids fame. As deep a yellow as anything I’ve seen. Shape and Size are the best also. This cross is an absolute certainty to succeed.
   
Pics of most of the parent plants can be found in the Gallery under Parent Pics on the main menu. Post and Packaging is $13 for up to 12 seedlings. Slightly more for further seedlings.

Rock Pile x Creek Aureum  The most popular ever! Just a few left.

Proud to say that I named these two. What a reputation they now have. Extensively used by other breeders, I thought I’d better have a go myself. Don’t think they’ve actually been crossed with each other til now but I might be wrong. For shape plus colour, these are sheer top shelf quality.

Rock Pile x Fort Knox Just a few left   

If my career in growing D. speciosum counts for anything, then this match should provide one of the most stunning speciosums that could exist. Rock Pile needs no introduction. Exhalted by growers everywhere and the highest dollar value speciosum on Ebay in 2012. See pics in the gallery section. Fort Knox no one knows but myself and one friend. Hailing from Kroombit Tops, its picture graces the home page of this website. My opinion is that for shape and habit of raceme, it is the best var. grandiflorum  there is. See for yourself!

  Den. speciosum var. grandiflorum x same   

Grandisaurus x Fort Knox Remade and available again   

While I was wielding the toothpic around with great abandon last year, I spied with my little eye these two. Fort Knox is probably the geatest all round var. grandiflorum I have. That’s why its pic is on page one of this website (quickly, go and have another look!). Grandisaurus is only a mosquito’s eyelash behind it. I know I keep saying it but its true. It’s scary when I think about just how brilliant this cross will be. I would be expecting some great strong yellow colours in all of the offspring. Sky is the limit when it comes to shape and  arrangement.
