    Subsequent repeat crosses by others showed the same results - slate/greyish blue colour with nary a trace of JVB. Thailand has made many crosses of V Mimi Palmer with many of their beautiful vandas and still the tessellata was dominant. This is the first I have seen where the JVB influence is apparent. This is a hybridiser's dream - the form and beautiful peach salmon colour of JVB and the tesselations of tessellata . This must be the flower the original breeder of V Mimi Palmer envisaged and which I had hoped for. Thanks Cathy for posting and I'm glad I am able to see it in my lifetime.

    BTW I'll be looking for one of these . It must be the influence of V Mimi Palmer 'Teo Boon Hian' HCC/RHT clone. It should read RHT acronym for Royal Horticultural Society of Thailand. Gosh I can't remember when I've been so excited over an orchid.
    Yew Sung, I have a small offshoot that is developing on one of the two leads. If you know of a way for me to get it to you...it is yours. It will take several months for it to develop sufficient roots to remove it off the mother. I will send it on to you if you would like?

    Thanks a million, Cathy. You are so generous but much as I would love to accept, I will have to regrettably decline that kind and generous offer. I will PM you the reasons. You are one of the reasons I love OT so much, You represent the best of the people we find in OT.

    It's a beauty, Cathy. I always like tessellated vandas, and anything in the red group. This one has both.
