Papilionanda Tan Chay Yan, resulting from a cross between the amphidiploid JVB (4n) and a typical diploid Vanda (2n) to yield a fairly uniform seedling batch, JVB hybrids made with other polyploids have tended to yield a surprisingly wide range of sibling variants. [Emrys Chew 2017-03-17]
Through the intervening decades it has been assumed that Pda. Tan Chay Yan 'SBG #770' and Pda. T.M.A. were practically synonymous. This orchid whodunnit has taken an unexpected turn, however, with preliminary results from DNA sequencing of the original Tan Chay Yan revealing no genetic contribution from either V. dearei or V. sanderiana. Perhaps we will never know which 'sanderianised' hybrid served as the pollen parent of one of Singapore's greatest heritage orchids. [Emrys Chew 2017-06-19]
History Papilionanda Tan Chay Yan made its international debut 65 years ago. Raised at the Singapore Botanic Gardens under the code number SBG 770, it was named for the originator’s father.
On 25 May 1954 a select cultivar ‘Pride of Malaya’, air-flown from Singapore and exhibited by Mrs. Gracia Lewis, famously won a Gold Medal and FCC/RHS at the Chelsea Flower Show. Its large, flat blooms were sensational and yet subtle: imbued with the radiance of a tropical sunset, a rich blend of golden apricot and salmon pink.
