    Wow, that's gorgeous. Good thing I can't grow Vandas or your great photo would have inspired me to get one.

    If I may ask how is an orchid determined to be a clone? I see clones and hybrids as options for orchids but no explanation. I tried googling what is an orchid clone and I get links to tobacco. If you could help inform me I would reaLLY appreciate it.

    Hi Monica, nice flowering of this blue Vanda coerulea. The twisted petals make this species special!

    To answer your question (with my two cents), a clone describes a particular plant or group of plants that are similar. Those clones can be determined as a division of the original plant or a meristem of the original plant (clones). A division is a cutting while a meristem is a laboratory multiplication of the original plant. Hope that helps when you further research the terms.

    Biologically speaking a clone is derived from a non reproductive cell - not an egg or seed. An orchid that is grown from a cell taken from a stem or leaf is a clone. A division is a division not technically a clone. It would be less confusing to comment by saying nice specimen. If the orchid was grown from a seed it would wrong to call it a clone.

    I saw the same thing when searching for a definition of orchid clone - only got lots of info on e cigarettes.

    Karin is right, scientifically. However, in the orchid world, the word 'clone' is used indiscriminately to describe plants of the same as what they are claiming to be. For example, we can say at an orchid show that this back bulb division plant is a clone of the mother plant or we can say that this is a clone of the awarded plant. Now it is up to the buyer to clarify whether it is a division or a mericlone. Ideally this should be changed, but it looks very unlikely as some confusion exists in all of the orchid-dom LOL.
