Vanda species of the week

This week we focus on Vanda coerulea and it’s different color forms. First there is the normal blue form.

Vanda coerulea

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.

Vanda barnesii

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!

In the greenhouse

Tags : 

Hi all

This is my first post on my new website!

A little tour in the greenhouse

The Papilionanda Mimi Palmer x Vanda Kultana Indian Incense is in flower now and has been pollinated with Vanda tricolor var. suavis. I hope that this pollination will be successful because it could result in some incredible new hybrid flower!

My testacea is also in flower now with 8 spikes. It is going to be a lovely sight when they all are opened.
