Another article about orchids that interest us; Sarcochilus First Light –

Aussie Dawn x hartmannii

with Aussie Dawn being dilatatus x hartmannii

All the First Lights we have seen have been a pale yellow with red stripes (not concentric circles) as this line of breeding does not rely on the hartmannii alba gene the flowers can carry red & yellow colouration. Most first lights have very good well filled in segments, well presented althought they are not as yellow as some of hte yellow breeding.

I dont beleive I have ever seen an Aussie Dawn, perhaps you have a photo you could share here or on our facebook page? We would love to see it, breeding with dilatatus is quite rare…
