    I have a Kagawara Yoon Weng-Low that looks a great deal like yours. Perhaps? Whatever you decide to call it, it is a beauty!

    Thanks, Connie. Practically all of the Kagawaras I've seen over here are Christie Lows which have rec spots on a red background and the flowers have a rounder shape. I saw your thread on the Yoon Weng Low and that too has spots near the base of the petals. But you are right, Connie, by whatever name, it is beautiful.

    Thanks Sriram. I love red vandas. However, when they bloom side by side, all these reds and pinks before a background of brilliant orange pomegranate and double coral hibiscus, I think I have to wear sunglasses to tone down the brillilance.

    That lovely pastel is a Velthius hybrid, Ed. There you can compare the size of the blooms of this diminutive red with a large vanda.

    Looks like a Kagawaara (Renantanda if you like) . Connie could be right with the ID.

    Hello Yew! I saw Connie's thread on her Kagawara Yoon Weng-Low, that one has a more rounded shape just like the Christie Low. Furthermore, it has spots near the base of the petals.

    Hello Zain. I have a Kagawara Christie Low but not in bloom right now. This one was given to me as a gift way back in 1999. It was a small plant and would give me only up to 4 flowers on a spike. At first I thought it was an Ascocenda but the flowers don't looke like it. I think it bloomed only twice in its first 5 years with me. For awhile I thought I would lose this one because my Aunt mistakenly cut it and the top cutting had no roots at all. But after a year or so of just "sitting" there, it made a comeback and here it is today.
