This is a discussion on A few Vandas and Dens within the Cattleyas, Vandas, Dendrobiums IN BLOOM forums, part of the Orchid Photography category; Am too busy at work that I forgot to post photos of my blooming orchids ...
Am too busy at work that I forgot to post photos of my blooming orchids last
month. Im too late now actually since most of them have finished blooming,
hope nobody minds me posting these too late.
All are of these are noids, except for the Den. uniflorum.
More recent blooms, opened about a week ago.
The first one was sold as V. Masao to me last year, the foliage looks like that
of Masao but the blooms proves that its not... its a first time bloomer for me.
Nearly lost the spike when we had a strong wind about 2 weeks ago that
toppled the driftwood its mounted on. Anyways aside from a few damaged buds
it came out fine.
The second is a noid den, nobody noticed that it bloom already as it is tucked
away in a corner hidden from view by the Vanda roots.
Nice growing. I love the color of the third pic, and nice photography too....
Thanks, glad you liked it Alvin.
All of them are very nice and the vandas and mokaras are particularly striking.
Thanks Yew, glad you liked them.
Hi Randy. Vandas in any form or color are beautiful...and so are all of your vandas. I particularly like the yellow Mokara.
Anyway, that so-called V. Masao looks more like a V. Hilo Monarch or some closely related vanda to me. I do have one very similar to yours but the buds haven't opened yet. Will post pictures as soon as they open.
Angel, yes i do agree Vandas are among the most beautiful orchids and so much easier to
care for as well. Anyways, thanks for the possible ID of my supposedly V.Masao, I have
done a quick google of the name it does look quite similar but I'll reserve judgment until
i get to see your's
