These are blooming right now:
Ascofinetia Cherry Blossom 'Carmela'
Rncds. Voja's Little Bird AM x V. testacea
Vanda Prema Indagahawela
The last two are crosses from Dr. Martin Motes and are blooming for the first time.
wow. Not seen may hybrids made out of testacea. thanks for sharing
I got these last two from Martin Motes in December. He was a speaker at the Short Course in Lafayette, La. He was selling a lot of these mini Vandas. Several crosses had testacea, ampullacea, and christensoniana. Probably more of these than the larger ones. I suspect that this is the future of Vanda breeding. I didn't know what testacea looked like until you posted it. The light yellow with purple lip is a great color combination (LSU colors). Nor had I seen christensoniana until Cervantes posted his plant. Both species are really nice. I don't know why I've never seen them for sale. Hopefully my hybrid will grow into an impressive plant in a few years. It's so small right now. I'm surprised it bloomed.
