    Very beautiful form and colour variant, Cathy. The form and spots remind me of small V Nellie Morley.

    Another pretty vanda in your collection, I like the pattern on the petals very soft tone and vibrant.

    Yew Sung, I wish I could find a Nellie Morley. I've looked for it for a long time.

    These flowers definitely 'draw you in'. The pattern, and the rufflled edges are neat. AL

    So have I, Cathy. Once in the 70s I raised Nellie Morley from 2 compots to blooming size. Out of the lot of about 40 plants only one was good - good form, colour, nice strawberry spots but few flowers - max 6 per spike. Even then I was offered a very good price for it, about US $500 which, of course I refused. Eventually it died on me after a couple of years of neglect - but that's another story.

    What irks me is how it is so difficult to find V Nellie Morleys today. One would have thought that with the superior forms of V sanderiana available today, there would have been more repeat crosses just as in the case of V Tan Chay Yan . In Thailand today there are a lot of crosses using V Josephine van Brero and the wonderful Thai strap leaf vandas. Can't say the same for V Emma van Deventer being used - that is as far as I have seen so far. Maybe it's due to the fact that superior clones of Emma van Deventer are difficult to come by. There has always been this story that in the 50s and 60s when there was much rivalry between Malaysian and Hawaiian hybridisers, great efforts were made to protect stud plants from leaving each others' shores. I hope that just as JVB has eventually reached Thailand and now we have lots of JVB crosses and Tan Chay Yan look-alikes, the same will happen with Emma van Deventer.

    Good luck with your search for Nellie Morley.

    Great information on NM. I'll continue to look. You never know when one might pop up for me.
    Like many old crosses once they are gone, they are just gone. I've tried collecting as many as I can. In all honesty, the old ones hold much more mystery and reverence than anything new out there for me.
    I have a few crosses with Chay Yan as the parent. I would like to find an old division of Tan Chay Yan.
