    Default Aerides lawrenceae x Ascda Roslyn's Best

    Lately I have been trying to collect intergeneric vandaceous crosses. Last year at one of the orchid shows i came across this plant at one of the stalls with only one shrivelled flower, the rest of the buds had dried up or dropped off because the plant had come all the way by train from Bangkok.It was the last day of the show and I got it for a pittance.

    This is the first rebloom in my place and I quite like it. Thrips have got at the blooms and caused a few blemishes on a couple of the flowers.

    so pretty, Yew! Neat shape and color. Nice growing. I could use your rehab skills for some of my not-so-thriving plants....

    That is one gorgeous flower! I have developed a fondness for the mini vanda and a few like this. I just wish the vanda weren't such space hogs. I need a separate greenhouse just for them!

    Nice cross Yew. I quite like it myself. The blooms look like they lean towards red, not pink. Is this accurate? Thanks! AL

    You're right - maybe 'salmon' of the wild type?
