I have long been contemplating on showing some photos from a garden show i've recently visited here in Manila, Philippines. However, i have not been diligent on resizing my photos. Besides, there are lots of work. Now i will try to upload some. I have a lot of photo files as i've said in my previous posts. It takes lots of time to manage them, but still i always have the proddings to share them with you. I hope these will remind you of getting the plant you have long wanted to have.... the Vanda hybrids.
Most of the hybrids used the Vanda sanderiana as a parent, either as immediate parent, as a grandparent, a cousin, distant relative or any relation. Vanda sanderiana or what we call "waling-waling" is endemic to the Philippines, and called the "Queen of the Philippine Orchids". It grows originally in the thick forest, but when the forests are dwindling they are already found in gardens of the rich and famous, or as collectors items by breeders and big flower farms. I cannot find my V. sanderiana photo at the moment so it deserves another time. For a thorough discussion of V. sanderiana please look at this.
