    Default Ascda Khun Nok, 'Nakathun'

    I bought a compot of this in 1992 from a guy in Bangkok who told me it had been his first successful meristem prop. I sold most of them ( I was in the business in a tiny way at that time- actually just buying plants for my own collection, but selling off the surplus from each of the handful of importations I did - this being necessary as no-one in UK imported any Vandas at all then). So this plant is some 20 years old.
    Digital photography is very interesting ; looking at the plant with human eyes, I thought what beautiful foliage I have ; not a mark anywhere, all leaves a lovely clear green ; but the camera sensor sees leaves starting to turn yellow . I find this quite remarkable - if a little deflating !
    A spike of about 14 buds and flowers , and a second spike - on the keiki, just about visible.
    As for size, its in a 10 inch pot, repotted in the Spring in coarse pine bark.

    Actually it has been awarded 10 times in USA ( the grex,not this specific clone) :- 4 AM ,4 HCC, 1 JD, 1 CCM, and twice in Australia - an AD and an HCC. Awards outside USA rarely get a mention on Orchidwiz.

    Lovely blooms Geoff. I agree that Digital Photography can be interesting, but I am not sure it is revealing a true shade or coloration. Maybe, maybe not. AL

    I agree - the reddish patches are more of a light brown colour, and the yellow is nearer cream ( to my eyes). But of course this is an early hybrid in a line of breeding with a lot of well-known awarded plants - if and when you see a display by that well-known Florida Vanda breeder, you are sure to be able to pick out one or more of the descendants from this one - or if not, very similar breeding..
