Vandachostylis Janice Allison
(V. Phairots Sand x Rhy. coelestis)

I still have a drawer full of award slides from the days of film...not that long ago! It's amazing how many have never been published here at the OPP. Most of them, excluding the few years when I shot both film and digital, and a small percentage of slides that had been digitized for one reason or another.

This week we have posted the remaining award images from the Orchid Society of Coral Gables show last month and added a few older images. This particular orchid is an appealing Rhy. coelestis hybrid registered by Orchids by Allison in 2004. It is one of those crosses that appear to be either grand inspiration or pure serendipity. V. Phairots Sand is an old (1989) hybrid made by Muses' Tropicals from two early "ascocendas": V. Medasand and V. Phairot. Pictured here is the only hybrid made with V. Phairots Sand.
