    Default Vanda tessellata x Vanda flores

    I have a few super scented Vandas. This is one. You can smell it from across the greenhouse. It also blooms every chance it gets. This is one I never put where I can't reach it.

    A very healthy plkant and wonderfull blooms in warm collours. What kind of scent is it?
    Vanilla lemon or caramel lemon would match the colour of the flowers.

    Think like a fine French perfume. Something very cloying and pleasant but not overwhelming. Even my husband can smell it and sometimes his nose goes scent deaf.

    Oh...one other thing. No matter how bad the bugs get, this one seems resistant to them. Maybe it's because the flowers are so solid, not flimsy like the huge Vanda flowers.

    It just dawned on me my close picture didn't upload. Oops..

    That is a wonderful Vanda!

    I just cannot figure out one of the parents, V flores. I even searched for a hybrid by that name. I just cannot find it.

    That's a really nice-looking Vanda flower. Anything with tessellata gets my attention, as the fragrance of that species alone is a good reason to grow one. Congratulations on your lovely blooms.

    I figured it out. One of the parents is Vanda floresensis, a species that is new to me at least.

    I am going to do some research. The tag is very clear and not smudged. I see there seems to be some reference of Vanda floresensis from Flores online. ....things that make you go Hmmmm. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.
