    Angela, me thinks Marg Thatcher isn't a Vanda. Appears to have "A" lot of Arachnis in it, possibly even some Renanthera.

    Thanks Roy. Bought from a Reputable Nursery, took 3 years to bloom, I never thought to question the Tag. I have now done a search and cannot find a Vanda with that name, but I found Mokara. M.T. the flowers are not as intense red as are mine.
    Hope someone else will respond with their input.
    Thank you anway.

    Both are lovely, Angela. Have not head of V Margaret Thatcher but your picture doesn't look like a vanda and I agree with Roy - it has a lot of Arachnis influence as well as Renanthera. I would suggest an Aranthera as the shape and colour suggest that.

    BTW there is a Den Margaret Thatcher, a horn-type dendrobium named by the Singapore Botanic Gardens to commemorate the visit of the then British PM's visit to Singapore. In the Singapore Botanic Gardens there is a section named the VIP Orchid section where orchids named after heads of states and celebrities to commemorate their visits to Singapore are exhibited.
