    Thanks for the help guys! Will have to write it on a tag. Im a little torn though..sad the plant was misrepresented to me but happy at how showy the blooms are and the arrangement is also very good...

    The leaves say Vasco' - that deeply channelled look , of course some Asctms have it too, but they are always much smaller. I have Pine River - two or three examples, but I could not tell them apart from one another or other Ascda hybrids, without labels . But you have an excellent flower count there . I wonder if Pine River ( or Vasco' hybrids in general)are capable of higher flower counts than Ascda ? They should be, after all some Vasco species can cerainly have 50+ flowers , even in Uk . regrettably my own Pine Rivers have not so far flowered as well as this, but maybe they are all small plants.

    There were several Vasco Pine Rivers at our recent orchid club sale. I think they were overlooked because the plants had gotten a little leggy looking. Afterwards, I noticed that even though they had lost leaves, there were old spike stubs at nearly every leaf junction on each of the plants. I would say that qualifies it as a "reliable bloomer". Being new at this game, I need all the confidence builders I can get, so one of these has found its way home with me. The flowers seem quite similar to yours, Gavin. My camera can't get purple right, either.

    This is lovely Trish and if it has spiked that many times that is certainly indication of a reliable bloomer. If the plant otherwise looked good you should have a beautiful Vanda for years to come. AL

    Congrats, it's a nice bloom, I have one too but already migrated to heaven. Looking forward for one again but the dark blue color.

    It's certainly a Vasco. Pine River blue!
