This is a newer plant. I have been ordering vanda types, and although I know they will show up and I will have to regrow roots...this vendor has plants I just can't find for the same prices. With flowers like this, I do not mind at all. lol The color is a pale Salmon with spots. The lip is orange with spots. The cross is V. Josephine van Brero x Ascda. Yip Sum Wah, which shows in the plants somewhat terete leaves.
You can see the bad roots that need to be removed. Every vanda I order from this vendor I have to give special soaks to ensure they grow healthy new roots. Also; from our rainy and hot summer several plants have needed extra treatments to keep fungal infections and bacteria from establishing and killing plants.
I really like this, love the soft watermelon color and freckles in the center and nice lip, I love anything with JVB in it and this is no exception. It's too bad that sometimes to get the plants we like, rejuvenation is required. Thanks for sharing this one, on my watch list
A beautiful JVB cross. Love those fine spots
Amazing color - especially how the orange seeps through from the background. I love how soft the blooms appear too.
Connie, your blooms are indeed very pretty and flawless. I love the colour.
I am attaching a photo of my Ascda. Chaiyot. (JVB x Ascda. Yip Sum Wah). There seems to be a great difference in these two blooms.
I am doing this hoping that others more knowledgable than I, would offer their thoughts on the big difference. In my blooms , you can see the JVB influence, while in yours it does not appear at all.
that's a good question Angela, both are beautiful orchids, when I did a quick google search I found several like Connie's with the same cross listed. I was looking at the coloring on the lip as my basis of judgement , I have a JVB cross blooming now and the blooms are a fairly flat presentation.I saw a few photos like yours Angela when I did my quick search, but they were listed with different names. I am not more knowledgeable, so this is just my 2 cents worth, and now I have 2 orchids going on my wish list, love to have both of these.
May I chip in with my two cents worth too.First off I would like to say that I've seen quite a fair bit of JVB crosses and owned a few myself. The majority of JVB crosses have this blunt spade-like lip as in Connie's specimen. The predominant colour is salmon in the vast majority of JVB crosses with fine spots present or absent over the tepals but seldom as numerous as in Connie's specimen. . I would say that the form of Connie's is typical of JVB crosses with Vandas or Ascocendas . Angela's, on the other hand, is more typical of a Renantanda with JVB as one of the parents and a Renanthera as the other parent. The vertically elongated and more open form and more pointy lip would suggest that this could be a Renantanda.
