    Default Vanda denisoniana white

    Another Vanda species I would like to share is Vanda denisoniana to me this one is pure white without any marks at all. Emitting very nice scent when the atmosphere dim or getting darker.

    I always find it interesting that white orchids commonly are most fragrant when it gets dark so that they attract moths that fly around at night. Very pretty Vanda.

    Nice, Zainal!

    It still looks slightly yellow to my screen, though, esp. the lip.

    Most of the Angrecums from south Africa they have a white color and strongly fragrant at night including Vanda denisoniana , most of the Vanda's when the sun rise you can smell them but vanda merillii is exception before dawn you sniff it...very interesting.

    Sheryl you can change the position, expose him to make sure he get more lights here usually flowering season during summer, I still remember back to 5 years ago when I had denisoniana orange so free flowering as compared to white one, maybe just a matter of time finger crossed for you.

    I love the wavy edge of the petals. I've never seen one like that before.
