    The parentage is Holcoglossum amesianum ( known as Vanda amesiana at the time the cross was made) x Sedirea japonica ( which was perhaps an Aerides at the time). Both plants have flowers which are 2 + inches across, but this seedling flowering for the first time ( after being in my possession for several years) has flowers only an inch across at the most. Maybe it will do better on a larger plant - it's in a 4 inch basket so dimensions can be judged I think from the pics.
    However what it does have going for it, is a wonderful perfume. Maybe it's jasmine - although I grow a couple of them in the garden ( (J nudiflorum and the larger flowered winter flowering one Mesne ? ) I can't remember their perfume , maybe because they flower in our winter when I don't hang around in the garden ! But the orchid is certainly nice in this respect , and I am aware of it when still a couple of yards away, which is not bad for two small flowers.
    I'll give it a bit of tlc and hope for nicer things next year ..

    I've been spending the past few months searching for an Encyclia fragrans, to no avail, just to have a fragrant orchid among my scentless paphs and phrags, and at this point, I wouldn't care what it looks like: the point being that, since the sense of smell is far stronger than all the other senses, jasmine at 2 yards sounds heavenly to me. And from 2 small blooms, no less - it augers well for celestial blooms and scents in no time (that's in orchid time).

    Interesting cross -- first I've heard of this one. I'll be interested to see its subsequent blooms.

    If you're offering, I'm accepting! (Unless it's one of those 50 ft. giants that will take over my entire apartment complex.) Stupid question, but do you grow a lot of them? I know little about them except that they smell good and some can get pretty large. PM me about it, if you have time.

    Apologies for brief hijacking of thread!!!!

    I know this is an old thread. I am getting Vandaenopsis Newberry Jasmine--which is another confusing name but it is this same plant. Can you provide an update on how this plant is doing?

    Same thing - its just part of the name changes suggested as a result of allowing the molecular ideas to over-ride the old morphology basis for naming.
    As for my plant, I sold it some time ago - reducing my interest in vandaceous orchids to make more room for others.
