After 8 years Dendrobium Avril's Gold 'Angus' has been cloned.

After being purchased from Henk Van den berg as a tiny tiny backcut we at AON have grown Angus up to a size now where it has been sent away to be cloned.

 

Flora propergation reported that he extracted 10 eyes   ( a near record number), so its guarranteed one will work.

It should be ready for sale by 2020   yes I said 2020

Not many people understand how long the cloning process takes.

The little orchids then need to be grown to a saleble size, which is about 2 years from flask.

So maybe 2021 !!!

The issue has always been its great monetry value and the risk off loss by cloning its foward lead.

It took 6 years before we could divide it and another two years to grow both pieces safely to cloning size.
