This Ascocentrum (NOID) just opened. It was in faded bloom about six months ago, so I did not try to name it. Now it is in bloom and well formed I have tried but as so far no luck. But I do love the soft colors, it is none fragrant.

The Little one in the brown pot hanging under, is V. Nakamotoara Newberry Apricot. It is just nearing seven years old from seeds that I brought to China with me. The seeds came from one of my orchids I purchased from Carter and Holmes. It is near blooming size and if all goes well next spring or summer it should bloom. A long time from seed to flower......... but it will be worth the wait.

My wife, said that she can smell a faint sweet fragrance; I have been plagued lately by allergies (AKA dirty air).

Love the soft pastel colours of this. Hope you can find the correct name for it.

I finally brought the rest of my orchid books to China. It took me three trips form China to the US and back again over eight years, and carried an average of 60 to 70 books. I carried my back pack full and one suitcase and half the other suitcase. So I have spent about two days looking through them all trying to associate a name to it.

I will have to go see a friend at the flower market, he may know.

I love the soft color it has.

Update, after a week of researching and coming up empty handed, I decided to ask a friend in Thailand. I sent him the photos and it took no time before he responded. He identified it as Vascostylis veerawan a cross of (Vasco. Veeraphol x Rhyn. Coelestis). He said that Vascostylis veerawan is common in Thailand, Vietnam, and southern China. He mentioned that the flowers can be white with pink boarders and a pink lip, or purple with a purple lip, and somewhat rare light pink with a purple lip. Not much published about it in English, most of what I found was in Thai, Vietnamese, and Russian. I checked Catalog of life, nothing and World checklist of selected plant families, nothing, and International plant name index popped up work in progress, and the International orchid register, nothing.

I will use this name for it but with caution, until we can try and learn more about it.

The white with light pink in it with the pink lip is great too. I just pollinated ours many students want to try and grow more in the lab.

Very unlikely to come true from seed but should get some interesting plants poppingup! There a lot of these intergeneric hybrids around in thailand at the moment.

The students like to try and grow new orchids to them. My students say that their Chinese teachers are boring to them, and that they learn nothing new and allot of it is incorrect information. One former student told me his teacher told him that a corn stalk can only produce one ear of corn. So I got online and let him see that not true at all. Then I contacted my family they sent some corn seeds to us. The next year we grow them and we had 6 to 8 ears on one stalk.

I do my best to flood them with information, and give them as many new orchids to grow as I can. And I insist on them communicating to other students and orchid researchers globally.

Over the years my students have asymbiotic seed culture many orchids that are new to china.
