    Vanda barnesii is a recently identified compact Vanda similar to V. javierae. It prefers cool to intermediate temperatures.

    Thanks Guys!

    I should mention that the flowers are quite big for the plant, about 7 cm (almost 3 inch) wide.

    Stunning Vanda... I love the pureness of the White flower-stems all of the way down to the main spike.

    I didn't think about that, but you are right, the single flower stems (pedicels) are completely white. But I do think Vanda flowers with large white flower segments have this trait.

    It certainly adds to its beauty & appeal. With this in mind I have just checked my own Vanda 'Mocha Spot' and its pedicels are in fact a similar colour to the flowers too. The pedicels are also noticeably 'twisted' like candy and I'd not noticed this either before now! We learn something new all of the time!!!

    Hey, Arnie... Following my previous reply, here's two pics of my 'Mocha Spot' the first of which shows what I mean about the 'candy-twist' pedicels which are evident upon every bloom. I particularly like this variety, as the flowers begin very cream in colour with dark brown spots which later become almost translucent purple. Its a well developed plant too as it produces 3 spikes every year...

    New to me, so I looked it up. Discovered as recently as 7 years ago in Luzon, in the Phillipines.
    I would think that there are not many examples of this species in cultivation....

    Yes, I haven't heard of anyone here that has it. I got the plant in 2016 from Carson Barnes, the guy who discovered this species.
