    Default Vanda coerulea x Vanda Mimi Palmer

    First time blooming for me. Althought the Mimi Palmer is a parent, I cannot detect any scent form the flower.

    I really like the whitish background, Naoki. This one is a keeper! I have this cross as well. It has never been fragrant for me and it is VERY much a reluctant bloomer.

    Thank you all. Cathy, actually it is a color from my living room. Since the color was hard to capture, I used a flash to get to this point. The flower itself is much pale. Not sure if I like it yet.

    I like it. Is it young? It still could color up some with a little age.
    I think mine has Vanda Mimi Palmer ' Teo Boon Hian' as the pod parent.

    I don't think it is young. It is about 1 1/2' tall. But it has not bloomed for 3 years since I got it 2008. All it did was to put out two keikis and one fell off of the mother plant. Although you cannot see it from the pictures, the flower each patal has a hint of brownish line.

    Have you ever seen Mimi Palmer 'Whitey' ?? It looks similar.

    I don't think I have seen it. The interesting is, however, that it kept the distinct color of the lip.
