greenyespetals are predominantly white with the upper half a bright fuchsia pink similar to its sibling, S. orssichiana 'Sarah Wildman'.

Clades sizePhylloclades formReferenceComments
MdentateSRL Registrationthis is a pure S. orssichiana derived from wild forms. Seeds purchased from in 2017. Sown and germinated in 2017. Phylloclades have 1-3 dentations per margin with the upper teeth being larger. Extra apical dentations are evident on some phylloclades. These can be large. This was the most robust seedling out of 10, only 2 of which survived and bloomed a year before my second survivor. Affectionately called "Caroline Shotton" after a young avid epiphytic collector who passed away far too young in 2020.
