Some while ago I bought a flask of six seedlings in an attempt to add a different colour to my Cymbidium collection. The expectation was from Mahogany though to Olive Brown, an unusual colour range that I did not have. I gave one away and grew the others on. The first one flowered last year (first Photo) and size wise just made it as a Standard Cymbidium. The second one has flowered this year (second photo) but is only an Intermediate in size. A pity as it is an interesting colour combination. Hopefully the other three will flower next year and may be a bit bigger.

Seedlings certainly give one some excitement in waiting to see what will appear. These two photos again show the variations you get in both size, form and colour.

Steve, I do like the second plant a lot. It has an interesting shape and colour combination. The first flower is just a bit dull to my eyes, as the least as shown in your pic.

As you say it is a classic reminder of how different seedlings can be.
