    The smallest flowered Neofinetia intergeneric that I know , but then the other parent is Asctm. miniatum, which is quite small flowered too. Some Twinkles are a much deeper yellow or brown than this . I have not seen any of these hybrids pn offer for quite some time ; there was a fad for them a few years ago , but things have moved on, I guess.

    I was told the other day that my problem in using a computer is that I have big hands - so my fingers are just too big for the keyboard , which is why I make a lot of mistakes ( which sometimes I don't spot until too late) However, the correct name here is Vandofinetia . Vandodinewtia is an entirely non-existent genus !. But you knew that already I expect. My apologies.

    Is that a light somewhat peachy coloration there, Geoff? Quite a delicate color.

    Yes I think so too ; of course, miniatum can vary from orange to almost red , and neofinetia can be all kinds of shades - I have one with a ime green flush, another blueish, and I have seen pink ones - so anything is possible here . But the AOS awarded Twinkles have all been in the yellow- brown range I think.

    I hope they keep coming up with new mini vanda crosses. I love them. I haven't found an easier group to grow down here than these lovely mini vandas. And most of mine have flowers that lend a lovely fragrance to the back porch. What's not to like?

    Actually a cross between Ascoccentrum and Neofinetia is called Ascofinetia and the cross between Asctm. miniatum and Neof. falcata has been registered as Ascf. Twinkle.

    I corrected the title, Geoff, no worries. I wondered what a vandodinewtia orchid was going to look like. hahaha...

    Beautiful and soft blooms.

    cheers,
