    Default Vanda Sunchart X Vanda Mimi Palmer ' Teo Boon Hian' HCC/HRT

    The 2nd set of seedlings using the Vanda Mimi Palmer ' Teo Boon Hian' HCC/HRT clone. This is the best of that cross, in my opinion.

    Cathy, this is even better than the other one!!!!!! At last a V Mimi Palmer cross that has managed to break the tessellata 'stranglehold'. I'm referring to the colour of the blooms and the lip which show the influence of V Josephine van Brero. It has taken more than 40 years for the JVB trait to show. I ordered my first V Mimi Palmer (V Tan Chay Yan x tessellata ) in 1965 from the originator of the cross, Gem Nursery of Singapore (no more in business) and doubted that it really was a Tan Chay Yan cross as there was no trace of JVB influence, which was so dominant in crosses with other vandas.
    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.

    Impressive just by its looks, Yew's story only makes this hybrid more alluring. Wonderful post Cathy. AL

    All I can say is WOW after reading the story of the cross. In all honesty, the bloom is past its prime. I knew it and the other cross were nice, just not like this.
    I will have to tell you the story of how this plant got knocked over in a storm. It caused the top to snap off. It didn't have any roots. I tried and failed in laying it on sphagnum. I lost the entire top. It took a while and I finally got an two offshoot. They both are good sized about 5 years old. One of the offshoots has never spiked.
    I'm excited to read your post Yew. I appreciate you telling me about the plant. Thanks very much.

    Cathy this is very pretty one, lovely... does it inherit the strong smell from Mimi Palmer?
