Vandachostylis Baby Angel [Neostylis]
back add to cart add to wishlist

 Each flower will be white with a light to medium blue tint.  VERY fragrant, some being so in the day and others at night.


This one ticks me off.  Originally registered as a Neostylis [Neofinetia x Rhynchostylis] the RHS now calls this a Vandachostylis [Rhynchostylis x Vanda].  This because they are now calling Neofinetia a Vanda.  HRUMPH!!!  Van. Lou Sneary has inflorescences of delicate blue flowers.  This has been back crossed to the miniature Neofinetia (Vanda) falcata.  Expect miniature plants that will not exceed 5" - 6" tall.  The inflorescences will produce 6-10 flowers.  Each flower will be white with a light to medium blue tint.  VERY fragrant, some being so in teh day and others at night.

Nancy Kline of Pittsburg PA has an interesting story to tell regarding her beautiful Lycaste pictured here.

'This plant (sic) was part of a small community pot from Russ Vernon purchased (sic) in October, 2008. By the summer of 2013 I only had 2 remaining and they were quite spindly looking. I believe they had been in sphagnum moss since I had purchased them. Repotted yearly, of course and removed from the compot as indicated. When I put my plants out for the summer, I decided this one was not worth the trouble so put it in my compost pile which is under a large maple tree in the very back of my little condo yard. A few months later, I went to put more items in the pile and found the new growth on this plant was glorious. So, removed from the pile, planted in a mix of small bark, sphagnum and small lava rock. More bark and less sphagnum and rock. Exact proportions unknown and I no longer recall where I found this idea. It went into a 4" clear plastic pot and spent the summer outside in a semi-sunny location. It came in to my HID set up in the basement for the cold months and was returned to the outside in late May. This past summer it spent its time under a crabapple tree with dappled sun/shade. It was quite wet here and it got LOTS of rain. I brought it inside in September and was not sure if I was getting new growth or spikes and by early October, this beauty opened. Another flower in early November. Still blooming. May not be quite as dark as that photo portrays. Have more photos and can take some of the new bloom. Really wish I had been able to get photos of the 2 blooms together'
