    Default Vanda (Papilionanthe) Amy - a terete vanda

    IMO this dainty little vanda is one of the prettiest of the terete-leaf vandas (now called Papilionanthe). This is rarely seen in collections as I believe all existing V Amy's comes from the original V Amy. This is a cross of V tricuspidata x hookeriana and V tricuspidata is very rare. The broader lip comes from the hookeriana parent. I recently obtained a few cuttings of V Amy from a relative to whom I had given this vanda many, many years ago.

    Yes, Bruce it does have a very lovely lip - and I love the 2 horn-like side-lobes of the lip too.

    Never thought about it, Maurice. As this is a primary hybrid some should look like Amy and some like either of the parents. Interesting thought though. BTW in Thailand there has been some breeding with V Miss Joaquim and I have a seedling of V Miss Joaquim x V Velthuis, which is a semi-terete.

    I heartily agree with you, these are the prettiest and most interesting of the terete vanda . I have both of them, and I am, from time to time sharing with other growers.
    Did not know that V. tricuspidata was so rare.
    I shared photos of both of them here on the forum.

    I agree with you, V. Amy and V. tricuspidata are the most beautiful and interesting of the terete-leafed vandas. I have both of them.
    I posted Pics. of both of them here on the Forum. "Terete Vandas" 29/5/11 Have a look. I was not aware that they were so rare.
