    Default Vanda deninsoniana??

    Hi all,

    I bought a vanda deninsoniana early of the year without any blooms. But i have doubts whether it is vanda deninsoniana when it blooms. The lips is different...is it normal? I heard it was special breed. I took the picture of the sample which the seller says not for sale because it was a display unit and it is different from the one that i bought from him.

    1st picture is sample plant

    2nd picture is what i bought

    Please share your thought. TQ

    The lip is large but the lobes are less pronounced, that's what you mean right? I looked at several pictures of denisoniana and a few of them have similar lips.

    It sure looks like a denisoniana and I like what you have. The color is fantastic.

    Hi Arne,

    Yes, the lips looks different. So far ive never come across any picture of deninsoniana with such lips. The ones i saw were all looked like the 1st picture (left). Thats why i have doubts.

    So is normal then? I thought maybe the seller mislabeled it or it was some kind of mutation.. hahaha...thanks Arne

    In real life, the orange color is much more striking and waxy

    It could be, but yes the lip is different, but still somewhat close enough to be an odd variant.
