    The first spike of flowers has been open for a couple of weeks, whilst the second spike has only just opened , so its more a case of two spikes almost at the same time rather than the normal double spike Vanda situation where both develop together , but still, a notable first in my own mind. I have had two spikes only weeks apart in the sense of the secondf one starting weeks after the first finished, but not this.
    I do wish that more of these Vandaceous hybrids were easily available in UK , but they are not. Watching EU dealers, please note !

    Quite complex and interesting parentage here - spanning at least 6 generations. The main constituents are V.sanderiana , providing more than 50% , Arachnis hookeriana - the white scorpion orchid -( don't know or grow this...)25% , then successively smaller doses of a couple of other Vandas - dearei and coerulea - , and Asctm curvifolium.
    But this kind of analysis is misleading I think , it only shows what went into the gene pool at various stages, not what came out , which is maybe the large size from sanderiana, the starry shape from hookeriana, and the colour from curvifolium.
    Whatever - enjoy !

    I think it does seem like Vanda sanderiana gave this hybrid its size. Your thoughts seem right on with the orchid characteristics shown here. Lovely regardless of how it all came together.

    cheers,

    My panni is still growing new roots...it came from a big bin at last years orchid show/sale. I will stare at your flowers until mine decides to start growing and blooming again.

    To think over six generations of various parents were needed to produce this diverse beauty is really quite astounding. AL

    Yes, but Al, think of how many generations of parents it took to produce YOU!
