    Default Unidentified Red Vandaceous

    This one has been with me for about a decade now. It is not a prolific bloomer which I hope will change because the plant looks healthier now. Flowers are small. One can compare them against the regular-sized vanda in the background.

    Thanks, Bruce. This one hasn't bloomed in 2 years, I think, or is it 3?
    My friend made a top cut of this one and planted the cutting in sunnier spot. I noticed later on that the cutting didn't have any roots on it. I was pretty sure it would die. Well, it survived. This is only its third flowering since that cutting error.

    Thanks, Ed. Well, it does have the lip and size of a typical ascocenda. I hope it is one so that my bad luck with ascocendas would be broken. LOL.
    That Vanda TMA Red in the background is a beauty too. However, sometimes I find that bright red next to hot pink can be quite an assault to the eyes.

    It's such a bright red and is further enhanced by the direct sunlight, Jeff, that I had to set the digicam to a setting where the colors came out quite dull so I would get this "normal" effect.

    Really Ed? And why was it so? Over here, white dendrobiums are popular mainly for weddings and I believe they are the only mass-produced color here. A lot of violet orchids also figure in all-purpose flower arrangements over here. But of course, they are not as readily available as the white ones.

    That red vandaceous orchid is planted beside the Vanda TMA Red and towering above it is the huge Mokara Dinah Shore which has three spikes in full bloom now (See "Mokara Dinah Shore 2012"). None of the cooler violets and dark reds are in bloom. And the bright orange Madam Kenny hybrid with a bright red tongue is threatening with two flower spikes coming up. Ed, my garden in on fire!
