Phal. Richard Ho 'Cranberry Sauce' is my pride and joy in creating our best red novelty Phal, named after our good friend Richard Ho.

 The pod parent, Phal. Sogo Relex, is the best red Phal bred by Mr. John Fong, owner of Sogo Nursery in Taiwan. (Mr. Fong has since retired and sold his business to Dümmen Orange). The clone ‘Sweet’ was selected by us from the original hybrid population for its vigor, compact leaves and sweet fragrance.

The pollen parent, Phal. Golden Sun (Phal. Salu Spot × Phal. Sentra), is a fine red big novelty Phal from the breeding line of Ching Her Orchids, which has amazing yellow Phals in its ancestry. (Hybridizing secret—you need good yellow genes to create a good red flower).


Two outstanding parents were crossed to create Phal. Richard Ho 'Cranberry Sauce', which really captures the best traits of both parents. It has compact, round, jade-green leaves (from Phal. violacea influence) with upright spiking habit that proudly holds its flowers above the leaves. The exceptional flowers are fragrant, deeply saturated, have heavy substance, glossy sheen, long lasting, sequential blooming, excellent shape and form. Plants produce multiple spikes that remain green for a long time and can bloom over several years. Do not cut the spike unless it is brown and dry. Can be grown under lights, on a windowsill, or in an orchid cabinet. This extraordinary hybrid sets a new standard for modern red Phalaenopsis. We have high expectations for awards from this exceptional clone.
