    Default Can anyone identify my Vanda?

    I bought this Vanda from a grower who visited our society. He said that it was
    VANDA MANUVADEE 'PURPLE WAX', he also said that he didn't know something about the name (something is missing)but I didn't catch what he said.

    Thanks Roy, I sifted the net and could not find such an orchid. Closest i could find was Pures Wax but not with Manudavee. Would you have other info?

    I also thought of V. Pures Wax. I found one reference to that cross, Manuvadee x Pures Wax, this cross is not named as yet but no reference to creator or anything else.
    The cross I posted, Maduvadee x Robert's Delight = V. Judy Russ. Reg'd by RF Orchids.
    I googled both & found pics of Judy Russ but quite different to yours shape wise, color ok. I would think your plant is a seedling, not a mericlone & has taken on more of the Manuvadee to coerulea style of flower.

    Love tihis vanda! Could you contact the grower? If you don't have his name, your society should.
    From all the likes you should have a market for keikis lol.
