    As you can see, it has not been exactly floriferous or me, but if it has Aranachnis blood then that is not surprising in UK light and temperatures ; but I have been experimenting with "making" vandaceous plants flower - on the theory that many need a temperature drop ( easily provided by leaving them out overnight). I seem to get spikes on say the usual large flowered Vandas which "ought" to be flowering again, with say 3 or 4 nights in the low teens - centrigrade- say temps of 10-12 for example. This one had that treatment three times at intervals of a month and then started swelling several nodes in the right positions, and one finally made it.
    I guess the next thing will be to take a top cutting from it , since it is already some 60-70cm high -another technique I have finally mastered ( keiki-paste is the magic clue here ) and then try my technique for flowering again when I have a plant more in keeping with the spike size.
    Flowers are a good 3 inches high by the way.

    A name might be possible from some of our friends in places where these things are more common than in UK,(?) and will be appreciated .

    It looks like Mokara Madame Panni. Love the color.

    I agree with the temp swing and it initiating spikes. We have had nights in the 60s and have gone down to 57. I'm sure that is what caused all the spikes on even some of the stubborn types.

    I agree, Panni has alot of spots and looks exactly like your picture. And may I say...gorgeous! I love these ones too. I always look for the guy with Mokara buckets at the show first.

    I concur with the rest. Looks like Mkra Madam Panni. I agree that temp swings do tend to initiate flowering in strap leaf vandas and crosses where the influence of the strap leaf parents is dominant. However, in vandaceous crosses where Arachnis is used then temp swings is not that important. That is the reason Aranda and Mokara are grown are grown extensively in large farms here for the cut flower trade. Diurnal temp range here is seldom over 10 deg F. Arandas and Mokaras are grown here in full sun, but close together to conserve moisture and to force spikes to grow upright.

    I cannot help with a correct name, but these blooms are right up my alley. All those red spots on that shinning orange background. If you can grow something like this in the U.K. their is hope for me yet to flower more Vanda's than I have. AL

    Lovely orchid. It appears the consensus is that it is Mokara Madame Panni.

    cheers,
