    Default unknown vanda type

    I have a no-id vanda type that has finished flowering so the only photo I have of the blossoms is blurry. It has a creamy center with pink spots and pink along the edges of the petals. It is also growing larger than the Ascdas I bought at the same time. Any ideas?

    Not sure, Cindi. It looks like a nice color, but it is hard to make out the details. I hope someone can help you identify it.

    Cheers,

    Not real clear in pic but I would suggest it an...Aeridovanda..= Aerides x Vanda.
    It may be a Christieara also and a clearer pic would help but I would will stick with the Aeridovanda.

    the flowers were about 2 to 21/2 inches across. I have looked through the photos I took at the time it was in bloom and this fuzzy one is the only shot of it. the plant was the same size as the Princess Mikasa 'Pink' that I got in the same shipment. Now it is a good 6 inches taller, let's see, I got them in June/ so it has grown about 6 inches in three months.
