    Default Papilionanthes

    Formerly known as terete-leaved vandas. These are very untidy climbing plants that produce copious aerial roots that reach out and stick to any surface. I have all my Papilionanthes growing up a dead tree trunk. All mine are 3 meters tall before they flower, as they only receive full sun at this height. Some of them in flower now:

    Miss Joaquim 'Agnes' (hookeriana x teres), national flower of Singapore:


    The variety 'Douglas' of Miss Joaquim has a larger more spectacular flower but mine is not in bloom yet.

    Poepoe 'Diana' (Cooperi x teres var. alba), another old hybrid.



    Amy (hookeriana x tricuspidata), this hybrid has an interestingly-shaped lip.


    All Papilionanthes are very easy to grow, provided they receive full direct sun and lots of fertilizer. They are very easily grown from cuttings, and the basal portion often produces multiple offshoots. The main pest is the orchid beetle, which likes to attack growing spikes and new shoots.

    I have a number of Papilionanda Pink Fairy plants. They are a cross of Papilionanda teres and Vanda (Neofinetia) falcata. Blooming size at about 18" tall, they are easier to manage, and requiring less light than the "Paps", can be bloomed under lesser conditions.

    Now with all these different ones can one of you tell me which one I have? I have had this for over 8 years and is again over 6 feet tall, I had cut about 3 feet off the top 2 years ago but has since grown back.

    JDT, your Miss Joaquim looks like mine, but I'm not sure how many different clones of this cross are out there, and if anyone has re-made the cross since the original 'discovery' of this hybrid in Miss Agnes Joaquim's garden.
