    Default A few Vandaceous in Bloom

    I shudder to think that one day I'll have to call them all just Vandas - but till then I'll just enjoy calling them by their present names. Just like Connie's my orchids are blooming all over the place so I'l lump all the vandaceous that I managed to photograph together in this one post.

    # 1 Christenstylis Kedah Bella (Christensonia vietnamica x Rhyncostylis coelestis) 1/2 inch flower

    #2 Paraphalaenopsis serpentilingua x Asctm miniatum ( a dwarf semi-terete) 1/2 flower

    #3 V Tan Chin Tuan ( a full size semi-terete ) 3 1/2 inch flowers

    and 2 more to follow ...... in next post

    Thanks Angela. That is one of my favourites too - the yellow has a fluorescent quality to it that is not properly captured in the photo and it is very free flowering too.
