    Default mokara, vanda, ascocenda, kagawara etc

    I was wondering how do you all differentiate a Mokara from a Vanda or Ascocenda or Kagawara? Is it only the breeder that will be able to tell for sure? The all have the same type of leaves. Most of the time my local nursery do not have a name tag on the orchid. I don't really know what I'm buying! LOL!

    Kagawara is a Ascocentrum x Renanthera x Vanda
    Mokara is a Ascocentrum x Arachnis x Vanda
    both trigeneric hybrids
    It is going to be hard to tell

    Cathy has a good point. Visually it is hard to tell. When you see the blooms it is a bit easier, but not always.
