    Another one. Gorgeous flower.

    I thought I have one, but I need to double-check my Vanda house. It is soooooo crowded.

    Hi Cathy such a very beautiful primary hybrids you got there I love to have one in my collection, I dont think that is bensonii X insignis, bensonii it doesnt have a lip as depicted above and I do believe it has blood of V. liouvillei. I'm worry your tag is not right.Just have a look vanda liouvillei below.

    An unusually compressed flower form from what I'm used to seeing with vandas. Can't say the scent would do anything for me -- I dislike both of the sodas you mentioned. heh

    You are 100% correct. I posted this from memory. I guess my memory is as bad as my eyes. It is liouvillei. Thank you Zain! I can always count on your knowledge.

    She had several liouvillei crosses, Naoki. I did find a species liouvillei a month or so ago. I hope it blooms this year.

    Nice, dark, compact vanda orchid bloom. The cross isn't named yet (I had to look it up. )

    cheers,
