    Default Vanda merrillii classic color form




    Found in the Philippines on the island of Luzon at elevations around 500 meters as a large sized, hot to warm growing, monopodial epiphyte with an elongated stem carrying several, linear-oblong, recurved leaves that blooms on an axillary, horizontal to ascending, 10" [25 cm] long, several to many [10 to 15] flowered inflorescence with spicily fragrant, fleshy, waxy, glossy, long-lasting flowers occuring in the spring. From IOSPE.
    Actually, the plant has been found in other islands as well.

    I like this Vanda very much. I have been lucky enough to get 2 seedlings of it. They are about 8 inches or 200mm high plus a ?? dwarf form ?? that is about 5 growth clump.
    How much larger would the seedlingsneed to be to flower and what are the flowers like on the dwarf, clumping form like if you know it please.
