    Default Vasco crownfox 'red gem'

    hi folks,
    one of my few hybrids and the first time i see her in flower after 1 year. the seller told me its some kind of kagawara christie low dark, that made me curious, since i have this "thing" for red vandas.
    this pretty lady has a pleasant spicy scent!

    hope my id on this one correct,
    cheers

    first 2 pix are taken without a flash, which shows the actual dark color, love it!
