Vanda-falcata-Danjeonghong-CHM/AOS-2021-08-05***Determined to be an unknown hybrid, not Vanda falcata (Aug 2021); many experts agree that most V. falcata are white with the exception of a few varieties that may be pale pink, magenta, green or light yellow in tone and all color varieties of the species have a white labellum; V. falcata is highly dominant in form and backcrosses over several generations will infuse deeper color but maintain the falcata form; this is a V. falcata look alike in form, but it is most likely a hybrid made with another dark color vandaceous species or hybrid.***
