    Default Ascda Siberian White

    Another of the plants I found in flower on returning from a week abroad . Actually I had spotted it before I went, but was rather busy for the last week or so , and never got around to bringing it down and looking at it or taking a pic.
    I find whites and yellows - in the larger flowered Ascdas and Vandas ( this is almost as big as a standard broad-leaf Vanda hybrid - flowers say 9cm or so - as you can see from one of the pics - I am not known for having dainty little hands !) to be a little tricky in getting perfect flowers. They so easily have deformed ones or touches of stain - as here. In fact if a spike is going to abort on one of my Vandas, a white or yellow is the most likely colour. Maybe the plant will improve as it matures - this is the first time I recall having flowers worth a pic. ( of course, the prince of whites - Tubtim Velvet - is the most perfect b****** in this respect - even if it does produce two and even three spikes at a time - it is rare for me to get a complete good spike of flowers.
    Ah well, if it were that easy, I guess I'd give up and go and find something more difficult to do.
    BTW I see this one is producing a second spike now- as can be seen.

    It may have touches of stain, but I still like it. I don't have a white one yet. It looks pretty.
