    Default Lt Yellow w/ Dark Red Spots NoID

    This vanda hybrid has medium size light yellow flowers with some reddish brown markings. It may be a mokara but its leaves are strap and quite long for the plant's size. What I know is that mokaras have semi-strap leaves which are more rigid.

    It looks like Mokara Bota Gold with those freckles and round shape.

    Default PHOTOS: Comparison of Bota Gold and This NoID

    I have another orchid that is identified as Mokara Bota Gold, Yew Sung. I posted it on the forum last April I think.

    Here are two photos for comparison.
    Bota Gold (top photo) has more elongated petals, a more bronzy tint, stiffer foliage, has a more "mokara" look to it. (Forgive me Yew Sung but my exposure to mokara is quite limited.) It also has more flowers per spike.

    This NoID yellow has longer, more "strap", more flexible leaves. It is light yellow, as opposed to the bronzy orange-yellow of the Bota Gold. Flower shape is more rounded too. The lip is definitely different in shape, color and shading pattern. The flower spike is longer too, the first bud appearing more than halfway way up the long spike.

    Hi Angel, the second Bota Gold is the one I'm familiar with and is grown quite extensively here and in Thailand. Could be both are cultivars of the same cross. Being hybrids there are bound to be great variations in both flowers and leaf configurations. I have personally seen a cross V Tan Chay Yan x V Rothchildiana from the same flask and grown to 2 inch whose leaves ranged from semi-terete to full strap. As to the flowers - most were Chay Yan -like, some were pink, very few were bluish. By the way TCY is triploid and so there are very few hybrids with it. The only TCY hybrid that is commonly grown is V Mimi Palmer.

    Sorry for digressing and rambling.

    Wow! I don't mind at all Yew Sung!

    So these two orchids could have come from the same parents? I could see it happening. After all, even among humans and animals, very few siblings are exact twins.

    I know how my friends feel when I begin rambling about the recessive and dominant color genes when I am breeding our budgerigars and African lovebirds. I feel the same now with your technical knowledge of orchids.

    Again, thanks so much. ;-)

    Yew Sung, I saw a similar orchid on the net labeled V. Kultana Gold crossed with Mokara Khaw Paik Suan. I am referring to the one that is pale yellow.

    You're right Ron. Yours does have characteristics of both of mine. I think Yew Sung would also be interested to check it out.
