    Default V. Merv Velthuis X alba

    Another pretty flower from my basement grow room. Another scrawny terete plant. These plants are not my favorite, but they bloom well for me.

    Wonderful!
    Unfortunately, Vandas don't like me...

    Well done!

    I am amazed you are able to flower the V. Merv Velthuis X alba in the basement since these are really high-light requirement plants. Even here in the Philippines, with all our sun and warm weather, some growers find it difficult to let this plant bloom profusely.
