Hi everyone,

A few weeks ago I bought a Vanda denisoniana (Yellow) and made a reciprocal cross (V. denisoniana pod parent X V. Chao phraya pollen parent, V. denisoniana pollen parent X V. Chao phraya pod parent) with Vanda Chao Phraya Velvet (Purple) which happened to be in flower.

At the moment I have 3 seed pods developing on the V.Chao Phraya and 2 on the V. denisoniana.

Does anyone have any of such hybridizing experiences to share? For example, how long does the pods take to mature, how to know if the pod is mature for harvesting and how long does it take for the seeds to germinate in the AVA horticultural labs? I am also interested to know what would be the resultant coloration for the progeny with purple and yellow parents.


Thank you.

Eugene

Here the tricky part vanda take 6 months to 9 months to Mature . Then one year at the lab.Just before you harvest the seed pod, it should turn slight yellow.

Then from seedling to mature blooming size still at least how long? 3 years?

so, if you wants to do, do a lot of cross. then sent them to lab. get ready a huge plot of land and start the cultivation. so, in 3 years, you can know which is good and which is bad.if you throw half of those away. you can have the other half.

big project.

AVA has transplanted my babies, and it was estimated that I could collect the plants in Dec 2014 or Jan 2015!

Does anyone have any experiences in registering the cross with the RHS??

Thanks.

Congrats !

There is a form to fill in their website. However, I think you need to wait for it to flower first ...

Congrats. But vanda takes a long time to flower, so will camp here for 3-5 years :hitmyself:/>

that's the downside to keeping vandas, but their blooms can last for 1-2months, so its a trade off!
