It’s Christmas! I don’t have an X’mas tree but I have an Aeridovanda Supatra Delight.

This cross between Vanda Krailerk White and Aerides lawrenceae is simply gorgeous. It harks white Christmas with 15 well-spaced, full, white flowers with a hint of pink at the edges. A magenta lip adds a dash of colour to this irrepressible bright beauty. I LOVE this orchid.

Aeridovanda Supatra Delight is one of my larger vandaceous plants, being half Aerides lawrenceae. I grow this in a plastic orchid pot filled with loose bits of brick, charcoal and roots from a bird’s nest fern to accommodate its thick roots. It’s watered daily, except when it rains, and fertilised weekly.

HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Bright, white beauties with faint dashes of pink.
