Congrats Cathy, you have a very fine one there.
    Yew Sung, I knew you would appreciate it for what it is. Most of the others that I have are just washed out in comparison. I wish I could find someone that had some old plants. I know they are out there.
    The blooms are very large and look even better in a week or so.

    The blooms are very large and look even better in a week or so.
    Apart from the venerable V Tan Chay Yan and V TMA, the best JVB cross I've ever seen was JVB x V Eisenhower, a very dark peach, salmon colour with some very fine spots, superb flat round form, excellent substance, good flower count (10-12 flowers per spike) but slightly smaller than a TCY. This vanda was bred by a grower in Penang, who was more well known for his superb Aranda Christine (named after his daughter if I remember correctly) and Aranda Wendy Scott, both of which became popular as the standard cut flowers of the day circa late 60s to early 70s.

    I agree completely with you about the washed out colour of most of the modern JVB crosses and that is very puzzling as modern day strap leaved vandas are far superior in quality than the old vanda parents and further more the flower count too has dropped. I'm not sure why but I think it has to do with the intense inbreeding of the strap leaved thus causing a loss in vigour in their offsprings. Just my opinion, very unscientific! LOL.

    Once again Congrats, Cathy, for an outstanding JVB cross.

    It's a joy to read Cathy and Yew Sung's exchange of ideas. There are many JVB crosses available here but not one is properly identified.
