    Cool Vanda in bloom again 2nd time this year!

    This Vanda has fragrance is the 2nd time it blooms this year it has double spike, I had posted a picture I believe in May. I purchased this about 5 yrs ago this plant measures about 6' feet long no ID lost tag a while back it should have the name "Motes" on it, someone had suggested in my earlier post that it could be "V. Kultana Fragrance".

    Beny, It is a fantastic plant. Love the color! Do you remember if you got this from Motes and that is why you think it had Motes on it? I hate that you don't know the name of this plant. If you do indeed think that it had Motes on the tag (and it looks like one of his) I can give you Dr. Motes email address and send him the photo. He is very generous about answering and he might be able to ID it for you.
    I have several Kultana Fragrance and it could maybe be one but I tend to think not.
    Anyway...bravo on this beauty.

    Wow, what a nice vanda. I love the color and the plant looks very healthy and well grown. I wish I'd seen this post earlier. Martin Motes was the speaker at our orchid society meeting on Monday. He gave a nice presentation on his new directions in vanda breeding. I could have taken your picture and asked his opinion. Whatever the name is, it's a beautiful vanda.
