    Default Sign of recovery - Vanda stangeana


    I am so excited. It looks like I saved my V. stangeana, which arrived with one root when I won it through the auction site.

    It has been mounted on to a tree fern piece wrapped with sphag moss for about 4 months. I just noticed 4 fat roots started growing.

    Now I wonder when it will bloom for me.

    I will be patient.

    Thanks, Jeffrey.

    It is rare in the U.S, I think. I was determined to save it.

    I am happy for you Naoki. I know how it feels like when you have a rare plant and then only to lose it .... it's good that you were able to save this one.

    Don't worry about the flowering yet and concentrate on getting the plant back to its full vegetative glory. Once the plant has fully recovered and is plump and healthy and actively growing then flowers will soon flower ...

    Cheers!

    There is an article where the stangeana in the US are newly named motesiana after Dr. Motes.

    "First question of course, is: "Why the name change?""
    "Well," said Dr. Motes, "the species formerly known in horticulture as Vanda stangeana was NOT the plant described by Reichenbach."
    Oh. "How could that be?"
    "Ignorance! Everyone thought they knew what V. stangeana Reich. f. was but the plant in cultivation had never been described! And now this young graduate student in botany from Pennsylvania, has discovered that the plant in cultivation was not that described by Reichenbach."
