    Default Chrisandra Chao Praya X Vasco Mishima Lime

    I have 2 of these thanks to my forgetfulness or having too many plants, both have decided to bloom at the same time. The one plant's blooms have a more violet lip, but a more yellow/green color, the plants leaves are slender and more arched shape, the other plant has a cleaner green color and lip is more white with a bit of violet and it's leaves are a more typical vanda shape, this one I know is not a clone, at least according to the retailer.Name:  mish lime 2 (Copy).jpg

    Ah yes, the joy of getting seed grown plants. You never know what they will look like until they bloom. I recently bought three cattleya like this. Each plants' flowers are different from the next. And lucky you got two gorgeous varieties!! I adore the one with the green cast to the flowers...it would have to come home with me. I wonder if the bottom plant would be considered a semi-alba variety?

    thanks everyone for your views and comments. this morning was first time I noticed a fragrance on both one is a citrus type scent the other a heavier perfume scent, both smell completely different. Connie I agree the greener one is my favorite of the 2 , I don't know if it would be considered semialba or not.
