    Default Vanda Mini Palmer x (merillii x insignis)

    Got 2 plants of this, I got them from the last Philippine Orchid Society.
    Both are in bloom now I believe I have already posted the other one last month.
    Anyways this is my favorite of the 2, not to mention that it has another spike
    forming. These hybrids are really reliable bloomers its their 3rd time blooming in
    my care.

    Heres the bloom from the other plant for comparison. And see why I like the
    first one better.

    Both plants are beautiful. I must agree a preference toward the first plant. The color is so vivid.

    I like the both of them. I think some time ago this was brought up i.e V Mimi(not Mini) Palmer. V Mimi Palmer is V Tan Chay Yan x V tessellata. The tessellata might account for the colour in the second picture.

    Randy you are very fortunate to have two varieties of the same cross.Congrats.

    I like the 2nd one better color-wise... do you have photos of the whole plants? would be noce t see the size of the flowers compared to the leaves. Are these semi-terete leaves? anyway both great waxy blooms
