    Well, this is certainly becoming more interesting, I'm learning so much. Thank you, Wade and Yew Sung. I think we have some local native ascocentrums in the Philippines though I have never come across one.

    Best piece of information I've read in this forum. Yew, all the while I thought the quarter terete and the semi-terete were interchangeable terms. Now I know better. And in such detail too. Thanks to you.

The second generation of crossing a semi-terete to a strap-leaved would be referred to as a 1/4 (quarter) terete, with cross-section of the leaf representing a very side V or U; also the leaf spacing is closer together more like that of the strap-leaved parent. Thus V Tan chay Yan is a 1/4 terete and JVB is semi-terete.

    From what I can see from your photo the leaves look more 1/4 terete than semi-terete. BTW V JVB was registered in 1936, 2 years before I was born, by a Dutch grower in Batavia, now Indonesia. A parallel can be drawn with your equally famous V Emma van Deventer, semi-terete parent of that illustrious V Nellie Morley. V Emma van Deventer is V tricolor x Papilionanthe teres .

    NB. Semi-terete and 1/4 terete are now Papilionanda, though I personally prefer the old generic name of Vanda.

    I was reviewing this thread. Looking at the first post in this thread I made way back in 2010, I mentioned this orchid was in bloom at least THRICE a year. That was four years ago. Now, it blooms twice a month and with 2 or sometimes 3 spikes. I wish this would happen to my other vandas too. That would be the day!!!

    Here's a new tidbit to chew on...

    I kept attempting to determine if there was any scent at all in mine. For about a week now I've been checking for a scent after the morning sun has been on it for at least 30 min or more. At first I couldn't really tell, but by day 3 onward, there IS A SCENT!! It is not very strong, and other than 'sweet', I wouldn't know how to describe it. There is nothing else nearby in bloom except a scent-less Mok. Salaya Red. It has to be this plant. Check yours to see if it has the same thing.

    Hello Yug. As I've mentioned this one is perpetually in bloom, currently with two spikes. However, it is now 8 feet tall so I have to get up on something to be able to give it a good sniff. I think all of the JVB hybrids have some sort of scent ranging from very weak to moderate. At least all of the JVB hybrids in my garden have scent.

    Yeah, that would be difficult to get up that high. Don't put yourself at risk, please. But, since you say that your other JVB crosses are somewhat scented, now I can't wait until my V. JVB (maybe), blooms again so I can see if that one has a scent, too.

    You're right, Yew-Sung. I'd say it's a keeper even if it doesn't have a name. Beautiful color!

    Yug they are usually scented in the morning, before the sun gets too hot. A sweet scent.

    thanks, Dahlan. Healthy, yes, you could say that again. The frequency of blooms, one would think it was on steroids.

    I finally decided to cut off the top of this plant since it was already more than 6 feet long and started twisting its way up the double flowered pomegranate tree, its double spikes of blooms partly hidden from view and entangled amongst the branches of the pomegranate. I've been planning to cut it for some months now but I was afraid that the constant blooming may be affected. The top cut is some 3 feet long and full of leaves along its length, with a lot of healthy roots too. I hope it will still be blooming at a similar rate. Oh well, let's wait and see.
