    Default Vanda bensonii x Vanda insignis, maybe

    I bought this seedling as V. bensonii x V. insignis, I'm not quite sure. It has bloomed on and off all summer. Pretty good for such a small plant.

    Hi Cathy this is descendent of V. liouvillei and very dominat especially the lip your tag is not right could be insignis x liouvillei, I love it nice to have in your collection.

    Zain, I think it is liouvillei as well. I just think the Thai folks either got it wrong or the person who translated it.

    Mistake do occur especially during labellings/ tagging in large quantities it's ok some clue we can detect from the flower itself.
