    Default Vanda (species) lamellata v boxallii

    The old flower spikes seen in the complete plant pic, tell their story ; this lovely thing flowers twice a year, usually double spikes , often simultaneously - esp. in the sumer. now in our winter the second spike will follow the first giving me 3 months or more of flowers. Not large flowers of course, 4, barely 5 cm in a north-south direction. Sometimes more flowers on the spike too - but there is a distinct difference between summer and winter flowerings here, with these tropical plants.
    BTW - this is the name on the label ; Jay doesn't illustrate this variety, and mine is far less colourful than the one he does illustrate. But I like it, whatever. Also note that I have another Vanda species - boxallii - which is much bigger, and quite different - inherently confusing I think !

    Nice flowering Geoff. One variety of lamellata hard to get here but I'll find it.

    Mine just bloomed this morning...your spike is so much longer. Very well grown... My flowers are Lamellata, but not the boxalli variety.

    Yours have a lot of yellow colour, I suppose, as shown by Jay ?
    I know he won't change his mind when I send him pics, 'cos he goes by the Kew monocot list or a Missouri database - and if they say mine is not distinct, then that is the word, whatever it looks like. Still, I'll see if he does make any comment.

    That is a very nice lamellata very much like the boxalli I've seen.
