    Default Vanda Joyce hands

    This is a cross I registered a good few years ago, naming it for my wife Joyce. At the time it was a Nakamotoara , as I recall - Neofinetia x Ascda. Of course when both Ascocentrum and Neoifinetia became Vandas, in the crazy world of molecular biology, it became a Vanda, as here named.
    Branches quite freely, due to the Neo' blood I suppose, so is frequently divided up and bits sold off. The only thing wrong with it of course is that the point of the cross was to try and get blue flowers in the small size - this is a six inch basket which you see here. But they never do breed blue.

    Nice flowers. If 'blue' x white = pink, maybe the underlaying colour of 'blue' is pink. I have seen the same pattern occurred such as Vanda Sansai Blue x Phalaenopsis Sogo Yukidian. I think people should try 'blue' x pink/purple instead of 'blue' x white which hypothetically will yield different shades of pink or perhaps 'blue' in lower percentage.
