    Very interesting.
    I know that it's possible.
    Dimorphorchis rossii produces two very distinct flowers on the same inflorescence.
    It is a plant similar to a vanda that has both fragrant yellow blooms and non fragrant white speckled ones.
    I am curious to see what your blooms will look like when they open!

    It will be interesting to see. I have seen orchids that produce a male bloom and a female bloom that look very different from each other, but never on a vanda. I have seen different colors on some oncidiums and phals. These color difference were due to temperature changes while the blooms were developing. How cool.

    Cheers,
