    That would be another similar one. V. Poepoe = V. Cooperi x Vanda teres var. Alba

    Wow, ed - what a fabulous vanda bloom - I've never seen anything like it. Are you leaving your orchids outside at night with these low temperatures? I decided I would and they seem okay so far, but I wonder what they'll do when it warms up this weekend.

    I am happy for any recommendations, I just looked up V Amy, WOW that is one very different beautiful bloom, I will keep my eye out for it, but terete vandas are hard to find here. The only white I can find is V. Miss Joaquim "alba" , described as close to a Shimonishi.

    thanks Maura, my vandas are on my porch screened off in plastic for the past week, most everything else has stayed outside. I recently changed my shadecloth from Luminet to standard black, but I saved the Luminet to cover my plants with at night and it seems to keep them warm. When it warms up I think we'll see a lot of buds and yellow leaves, such is life.

    Hi Ed
    I agree with all that is said before, especially concernibg full sun. I have one that just would not bloom for more than 3 years. I moved the big pot into full sun and it now has 2 flowers.
    I also have the Poepoe 'Diana' which just would not bloom. It is growing and increasing in size, but no flowers.

    @ to those of you who say V. Miss Joaquim 'Douglas' is difficult to find, try the Redlands Show coming up in May. I got mine there 3 years ago.

    I'm glad to see there is so much interest generated by our 'common' garden plant Vanda (or Papilionanthe) Miss Joaquim. Everyone knows that Miss Joaquim 'Agnes' is the national flower of Singapore. Much controversy surrounds the origin of V Miss Joaquim. The accepted version is that the original Miss Joaquim was found growing in the garden of Miss Agnes Joaquim (from a well-to-do Armenian family living in Singapore) in 1893, and named after her - thus V Miss Joaquim 'Agnes' (teres x hookeriana). BTW for history buffs The Armenians played a big part in our early history and their legacy is still very evident to this day - the world famous Raffles Hotel in Singapore and the E & O Hotel in Penang, established by the Armenian Sarkies brothers in 1885; and Armenian Street in Penang. Sorry I digress......

    1. Miss Joaquim 'Agnes' - the 'original'
    2. Miss Joaquim 'Josephine' - remake by John Laycock 1933
    3. " 'Rose Marie'- the Java remake 1937
    4. " 'Atherton' - the Hawaiian remake, a darker version - most of the New World Miss Joaquim is from this clone
    5. " 'Douglas' - tetraploid form of 'Atherton'
    6. Cooperi 'White Wing' - Miss Joaquim 'Josephine' x hookeriana 'alba'
    7. Poepoe 'Diana' - Cooperi 'White Wing' x teres 'alba' - Hawaiian cross, very good form and clean white

    I'm glad to see Angela has joined in because I remember she has some beautifully grown Miss J in her garden. The 'Mother of All Terete Vandas' V hookeriana , is called the 'Kinta Weed' and grows in swamps and bogs in our state of Perak without climbing up any support and blooms right out in the sun above the reeds. If you grow Miss J and use a stake don't use a stake taller than 4 feet as the tendency is for it to bloom just as it grows above the top of the stake. So if you let it climb a tree then you may have to use a long telephoto to take pictures of the blooms. I think Angela has the right technique of using chicken wire (if I remember correctly).

    thanks Angela for the advice, and if I remember correctly you grow yours in a wire 'cage' filled with coconut pieces

    thanks for the info Yew, much appreciated, Papilionanthe are my favorite of vandas, I've heard about the staking and the plant must grow so much taller over the stake before it blooms, I'm afraid to let it attach to anything like a tree since it's rare but we have gone below freezing temps here. Mine is growing in lava rock right now, which I am changing when it warms up, was thinking of using tree fern, but the book I have for growing vandas in Florida says to use cypress mulch for this type of vanda, that seems odd to me but I guess it would maintain a good moisture level.
