After a nice long weekend with no construction i'm actually caught up enough to post a couple pics. I mounted two mini vanda on a plank of wood about two or three months ago. I may cut the board in half so they can hang separately, but so far it's been handy. Both plants are hybrids of the Darwinara Fuchs Cream Puff. The one not in bloom was crossed with Rhy. coelestis 'Pink'.
So cute and pretty.
A lovely mini vandaceous!!
Nice one Connie ! I think it is getting a bit too dry for the vandaeceous, may be some moss or coconut husk around might help.
I have Cream Puff. It bloomed for me only once, something I am not doing right.
Very attractive blooms Connie. You and other people here at The Forum are convincing me to start using mounts such as this more. Thanks for posting! AL
Thanks for your reply Connie. Your points are well taken and as with so much of the cultural information in our hobby it just proves again that there are no absolute answers to every question! AL
A interesting hybrid this one, which has not been near my radar. I guess the flower is larger than we would expect on a primary hybid from miniatum, and the colour has come out delightfully . ( Just the same colour as the apricot jam I made last year ! ). Here in UK , all my Neofinetias and their hybrids, including the only two Darwinaras I have, are rooting like mad - which augurs well for flowering time later in the year.
