    Default Ren Singaporeans ( Ren Kalsom x Ren Tom Thumb)

    This is one easy Renanthera to grow. It is also quite a small plant, for a renanthera and is very free flowering. This is a first time bloom for me on a foot tall plant. The difference in the colour is due to the angle of the sun - one with frontal lighting from the sun and the other with backlighting.

    Under vanda light, the same as that for my other strap leaf vandas.

    You could always try. It is a small plant and being a renanthera is more tolerant of loert light and cooler conditions than other vandas.
