    The only thing now is I wonder how long before this keiki reaches its full maturity and to start flowering. GeesH. I'm happy though to have a division of the plant.
    congrats jojo hope it grows into full maturity the soonest possible so we can see the bloom in no time

    Yahoo! I was finally able to obtain a keiki division of this wonderful, outstanding clone at a very minimal fraction of its cost!
    May we know, for how much you bought that division?

    Just my 1 cent of advice !

    Outstanding Vanda (Euanthe ) sanderiana clones are now sold at very affordable price since Euanthe sanderiana is also bred in Thailand and Hawaii .

    Some of them are from Thailand grown while there are some local breeders who have outstanding clones and are selling them at a much lower price.

    Several decades ago, you can hear that people would brag on how much they have bough V. sanderiana locally called Waling-waling . Since V. sanderiana is very important in breeding .

    Default $ 1 K for vanda sanderiana alba

The stall is owned by two friends of mine who are basically into Ferns and Aroids exporting overseas mainly to Singapore. I was told that these plants came from their private collection and was removed from the huge tree trunks in their excellent nursery located in the highlands of Silang, Cavite, Philippines.

    These are up for sale and I was literally drooling over these excellent clones which had numerous offshoots of assorted sizes at its base (these could eventually be separated from the mother plant). My two friends were not present that time and I was interested but when I asked the attendant, I was told that the largest plant on the left cost PHP45K (roughly a little below US$1K where the current rate for today is PHP44.35 to the US dollar)! Ohmigosh! I can't afford that so I just smiled and left abruptly as in I was really in shock! I didn't even bother asking for the price of the second but slightly smaller specimen plant as I figured that it wouldn't be so far off from the first one. Guess I'll have to get in touch with my two friends and try to haggle for a smaller plantlet without flowers as long as it comes from the same mother plant and something that I can afford.

    Sorry if the two close-up photos (first and last shots) are blurry ..... that was caused by the shock I had when I learned of the selling price. My hands were trembling with envy, lust and shock! LOL!

    The second (long-shot) photo though is clear.
    A grand for vanda sanderiana alba is highway robbery! I have only seen them in pictures and I was in the Philippines for 32 years of my life. I was born there and actually saw a few vanderiana euanthe sanderiana. In the next few days I am almost certain I will get my hands on a v. sanderiana alba for only $22 including h & S.
