    Default Vanda coerulea

    Here another coerulea jungle collected , the pattern on the petals totally different from previous posting. Jungle plants the inflorescence is very small as compare to selected clone and surprisingly they can hold huge flowers without easily break it.

    Very nice clone Zainal. Yours is one of the varieties without the tessellations . coerulea is very variable and in Thailand we can find the alba form as well as the pink form.

    Super colour; interesting about the lack of veining, something I hadn't noticed before. I have never seen the species in flower in the wild, although I have seen plants growing in the wild which I was assured were this plant ( but Vandaceous plants are very look-alike, in many cases.)
    My first C.coerulea was jungle collected 45+ years ago, and produced a spike of 30 or so flowers, but not large ones. I have never seen anything like that number on a spike since. Alas, I had not the faintest idea of how to grow it then, and it soon dwindled away.
    The good thing about seed-raised ones, often line-bred, apart from (maybe) very superior flowers is that they are so much more adapted to cultivation.
    Thanks for showing this ,I found it most interesting.

    Very beautiful, you are lucky to have such a rare plant. I think in nature, the wind hardens the flower spikes much more. My flowers that grow outside always have the sturdiest spikes compared to my indoor spikes.
