    Default Primary hybrid

    Was sold to me as Vanda sumatrana I was amazed as the flower was very huge, by looks at the plant character definitely is not V. sumatrana more likely primary hybrid between V. sumatrana X V. leucostele (V. helvola) from Sumatera.It's emitted very strong fragrant and long lasting.

    Beautiful Zain. About how many Vandaceous Type orchids do you own now? Off the subject, but I noticed you once owned a Encyclia cordegeria alba. I was wondering if the spikes on this Encyclia come up at the base of the pseudo-bulbs and not at the leaf axis as with other Encyclia's? What I'm seeing growing on my alba sure does not look like new growths, but more like spikes. AL

    I have more than 40 Vanda species from all over South East Asia except those from India and Sri Lanka. Thanks AL wish you can post the photo at least we can see and sharing the knowledge. From my plant the spike arise from the leaf axil seldom from the base but sometime I saw another Encyclia which is very odd arise from the base this is exceptional could be due to temperature related or fertilizer.

    Thanks for your response Zain. Your right Zain about sharing the knowledge and I will post that photo of this possible exception to the rule . It might save someone confusion and especially if they've had to wait a long time for spikes it would make the viewer quite happy.....................AL
