    so clean pink colour, great plant you have Yew. I'm growing a planty of Aerides, Rhynchostylis and Vanda plants, but Rhynch. gigantea always died. No idea why. I'm keeping it along Rhynch. retusa and this plant is growing and flowering very well, my gigantea, just lost the leaves and gos to orchids haeven.

    Thanks Mietek. This has got to be my favourite Rhy gigantea -- I keep looking at it several times a day. Are yours grown in their original slatted plastic baskets or mounted? I find that those mounted on driftwood/logs do much better, the heftier the log mounts the better they like it.

    Prof Rapee Sagarik is a legend in the orchid world and is considered the 'Father of Thai' orchids. He almost single-handedly launched the Thai orchid industry. He was awarded the AOS Gold Medal of Achievement in 2010 in recognition of his contribution to advancement of our knowledge in orchids. I was privileged to meet the great man twice. Thailand and Thai orchidists in particular owe him a debt of gratitude for putting Thailand where she is in the orchid world. His search for the different varieties of Rhy gigantea throughout Thailand would have made a great adventure novel.

    Zainal it is not genetic engineering, but line breeding. You carefully select individuals with the characters you like and keep crossing them for many generations, selecting only the individuals which keep the selected characteristic and enhance it. For eg. the normal R. gigantea has spots, you could create a spot less gigantea theoretically just by selecting two individuals with less than normal spots cross them, among their offspring again select flower with fewer spots and repeat this for many generations, finally you will have a spotless variety. I think the solid red variety of R. gigantea var rubrum is also sometimes referred to as the 'Sagarik' strain after Prof. Sagarik who bred it by linebreeding.
    Thanks Amey for the valuable info so interesting for the future generations to take note.
