Correct.  But the original cross remains difficult to make, and the progeny
are intermediate in many respects.

Crossing among many generations of Pardancandas has gradually eliminated
much of the Pardanthopsis genetic information, probably because of
unintended selection for vigor and for yellow, orange or red colors.
