The first awarding of the WOC Trust's Innovative Hybridising trophy was for this remarkable cross between Paraphalaenopsis laycockii and Ascocenda Madame Kenny to give a short-leaved compact plant with many delicate pink flowers on an erect spike. The exhibitor's award was presented to Madam Sze Chain Fai, President of the Nanyang Orchid Society. The hybridiser of this cross, which was first registered in 2003, was Mr Moi Hwa Law, a commercial grower with a successful history of innovation in the Vanda alliance.
