    Default Ascda. Cathy Crosby Day

    This name maybe familiar to some, a local nursery is naming this cross for her, V. sanderiana x Ascda. Fuchs Spotted Orange, I just received this today in bloom. When I first joined OT Cathy was one among many who gave me great advice and tips. It has a very light clean scent to it.

    That's a beauty, great colors. Cathy gave me lots of excellent culture tips when I first started growing vandas. I've always thought of her as the queen of vandas.

    Love the flower color and spotting! If I had the space and conditions needed to grow vandas, this is one I would want to own. (And there aren't many of the Vanda alliance I can say that about.)
