Hi here is a short video about Vanda testacea.
Today two of my Vanda Golamco’s Blue Magic are in flower, enjoy!
This week we focus on Vanda coerulea and it’s different color forms. First there is the normal blue form.
To make sure that it is a true coerulea, check the side-lobes. If they are pointy it is the species, if they are blunt it is a hybrid.
The pink form is called Vanda coerulea f. delicata.
Then there is a form that is between the blue and the white called Vanda coerulea f. rogersii. Photo by Philippe Christophe
The very rare white form is called Vanda coerulea f. luwangalba.
Here is an article written by my good friend Philippe Christophe.

This wonderful cross that I bought from Kultana in Thailand some years ago has the sent of tessellata with some spices added.
Its a quit large plant that flowers 2-3 times a year.
Today I finally got my seedlings from Carson Barnes. Many thanks Carson for all you work and care. I give a long finger to the Swedish post office customs, that wrongfully held the plants for two weeks. As a relief all the plants looks fine!
The count of Vandaceous species and hybrids photos is now up to over 800 in the photogallery’s!!!
Photo of my girls with a large Vanda Kapiolea taken many years ago. The plant had five spikes at the time and flowers measuring 14 cm wide.
Many thanks to Zain Othman for letting me use his Vanda photos!
