    I just looked up the name (twinkle) in Orchidwiz, since I could not remember the precise genus or genera involved. I thought it was Neofinetia and Ascocenda - making it Ascfta I suppose - although after all the DNA stuff, probably all Vanda now.
    But Orchidwiz lists four vandaceous plants under Twinkle names -a Paravanda ( with paraphalaenopsis as a parent) - a Sarcochilus , and a Vandaglossum , as well as what has to be right one, which it lists as Twinkle(1960) and gives the parentage as Vanda falcata , aka Neofinetia, x Vanda garayii ( aka Ascocenda ) - and only after typing all this stuff have I realised that I had got it right at the beginning...must be a bit thick tonight (me).

    So, I then looked up my old pics - looks as though it has not flowered for at least four years ( following heat damage ) but has now made up for it by doing better than ever before. I just hope it will last out the month - for one of my two local Shows . A bit marginal I think !.

    Having never seen this before I have no idea whether it is marginal or not Nice recovery Geoff!

    Looks beautiful Geoff. I have a liking for the Neo hybrids due to thier compact nature and power packed inflorescence.
