Inverted Veined Moorei

Here’s an update on a beautiful and unique moorei cross by James Soe Nyun. (S. flava var maxima x leucophylla “Burgundy” is the cross.) It’s a little behind in development and coloration compared to this time last year, but the plant is still doing well. The red coloration is only now starting and it contrasts quite nicely with those green veins. It’s been noted that using select clones of S. flava var. maxima will yield this “inverted veins” effect. I did a couple crosses both last year and this year using a few S. flava var. maxima clones so we’ll see what comes out of it. In the meantime, enjoy a few shots of this fantastic moorei. Beautiful work, James!

  1. Such a beautiful plant!!!

  2. Fabulous plant

  3. I’m really liking the magenta areoles and green veins. And the top of the lid is looking pretty interesting too…

  4. Every time I see this plant it feels me with envy.

    Have you ever considered crossing it with one of the inverse veined cates or excellens?

  6. I have seen some promising results in other peoples hybrids with Juthatip Soper too. I just got mine from Mike King, but I’m hopeful that one day it will give me some inverted awesomeness.
