What do you get when you cross Cattleya Maxima and Rhyncholaeliocattleya EZO Robin’s Magic

You get a Rhyncholaeliocattleya Datin Seri Rosmah!

SERDANG, Dec 2 — The Malaysian Agricultural Research and Development Institute (Mardi) has named a new hybrid orchid after the prime minister’s wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.

Rhyncholaeliocattleya Datin Seri Rosmah was launched by Rosmah during her visit to the Malaysian International Agriculture, Horticulture and Agrotourism Show (MAHA) here today.

Rosmah who arrived accompanied by members of the Association of Wives of Ministers and Deputy Ministers (Bakti) was received by Agriculture and Agro-Based Industry Minister Datuk Seri Noh Omar.

Rhyncholaeliocattleya Datin Seri Rosmah has attractive white and orange flowers with sweet fragrance.

The orchid is suitable for potting and the flowers can last between two to three weeks.

It is a cross between Cattleya Maxima and Rhyncholaeliocattleya EZO Robin’s Magic. —Bernama go here

Sorry folks can't help it......susah nak hibernate......

Ampu jangan tak ampu !

Siap ada Datin Seri tu beb......

The Second Orchid with a Datin Seri Title!


The First Datin Seri Orchid was none other than the cross breed between a local and a Thai variat

Mardi produced the orange-red Mokara Datin Seri Endon orchid by crossbreeding the local Arachnis Maggie Oei with the Thai Ascocenda Udomcahi in 1993. The flowering began in 1999. go here
Both share the same attribute.....

They were not naturally discovered but were created by science......

and what happens if we now cross the Makora Datin Seri Endon and the Rhyncholaeliocattleya Datin Seri Rosmah?

Ok...gua dah merapu.....but monkey wonders what should be the standard of naming a new species in Malaysia?

All those ladies with Tun's tak pernah dapat Orchid species pun? 

What about Nicole David, I think she deserves to have an Orchid named after her instead of the two Datin Seri's....
