    Default Euanthe sanderiana

    I've had this plant for several years. This is the first spike in 2 years. Compared to all the other Vandeous plants this is a s-l-o-w grower. I was surprised to see the spike as it is being housed under less then favorable conditions...heck they all are.
    I will be interested in seeing if this plant is indeed pure species. It has longer, slightly drooping straps and is blooming at the correct time? I know there are many of the gurus here that will be able to tell me.

    Congratulations on the spike! I hope you post pictures when it blooms. It looks like a very wide vanda. I have a couple wide ones and they're real pain because they take a lot of space and my space is very limited. Unfortunately both my wide one's are too pretty to get rid of. Good luck with your's.

    Limited is a bummer. There is always one you have to have! It is hard to get rid of plants. I'd really like to unload most of the catts but I haven't yet. They just don't do much for me anymore.
    Thanks Jeff

    Yay, sanderiana. I cannot wait to see the pictures.

    BTW, speaking of the limited space. hmmm. I got a similar issue. I have two space-huggers; V. luzonica & V. Roman Empress ( V. Rasri Gold x V. sanderiana alba )

    Well, the drooping and longer-than-usual leaves are one of the characteristics of a pure species Euanthe sanderiana .... but until the flowers open you won't be able to confirm that.

    The Sanderiana has this main characteristic of the absence of a spur in the rear of its lip unlike most other vandas and their hybrids. That is another thing that you need to look out for.

    Yes there are clones of sanderianas that are really SL-O-O-O-W growers specially the really good varieties of it. Perhaps if you can keep the temperature stable on the warm side and high humidity that might help a bit in speeding up its growth.

    Cheers!

    Nice Sanderiana Cathy,

    Darn, why I dont have that kind of Vanda even if it is a local variety.

    High Price!

    From an orchid show i bought a seedling of that, thougth not sure if it is a real Euthane Sanderiana.

    Maybe i should put that in my wish list this xoming X-Mas hehehe

    I'm hoping it is pure species and will post pictures once it opens.
