    Default Aeridovanda (Neo. falcata x Aer. odorata)

    I am a big fan of the neo-vandaceous crosses, as they are compact, easy to grow, and really put on a show. The only real issue I have with them is that many look just like "tinted neos" with small, narrow flower segments.


    I just got in a new hybrid, this time with Aerides odorata as the pollen parent, and the result is quite remarkable. The plants are about 6" tall in 4" pots, and the 1" flowers are very flat. I detect a faint, but lovely scent, as well, but at 8 am in a shaded kitchen window, I don't know if it might be stronger with more light.

    Amazing hybrid, there are very few Vandas that can mask the Neofinetia dominance, the Aerides seem to do it well. Very nicely bloomed
