Vanda testacea `Bryon' x self
India - Indo China.
Uncommon small vanda species with many attractive 3/4" yellow or orangey flowers with purple lips. You and I are not going to grind up our orchids, but it is interesting to read about this: "Vanda testacea (Lindl.) Rchb.f. known as Banda or Rasna, an alkaloid rich epiphytic species of Vandaceous orchids, is widely known for its medicinal properties. Almost all plant parts (roots, leaves, flowers) in powder form or as an extract are used as herbal medicines to cure rheumatism, bronchitis, nervous disorders, piles and inflammations as well as a potential anti-cancerous drug." (A Highly Medicinal Value Epiphytic Orchid of India, Sebastinraj, et al, 2014) It is faced with extensive collections and habitat destruction pressures.
