My wife's Vanda is blooming for the first time and I lost the tag. Hoping someone can ID the variety.

Thanks,

RE: Vanda ID please

You are asking the almost impossible, your only hope is that this is a widely grown mericlone that someone has and will recognise.

Just as an example of the number of registered hybrids involved a search of the Genera Vanda with a in the grex name gives 2549 names.

Lovely orchid.

Understood. Thanks much for your replies. We're in W. Covina, So. California Gary. That big old Camphor tree seems to really enjoy being the host for a multitude of plants.

Thanks again for your help.

Dewaine, it's hard to tell from the photo, but are any of your orchids growing directly on the Camphor tree? It's a very common tree here in Southern California and I've often wondered whether it would be a suitable host for epiphytic orchids.

We grow many of the same plants. I live in Glendale...you and your wife should come over for a tour of my collection some time.
