Mark Dimmitt is responsible for some of the most incredible hybrids in the trade, this being one of them (Curly Slim is probably his best known).  This plant is chiapensis dominant in most ways.  The long branches of the inflorescence come from roland g. along with the thinner, longer leaves but otherwise looks very chiapensis like. Cool inflorescence formation with the twisting of the bracts
