Like its close relative Vanda coerulea, the sharpness of the side-lobes in every flower attests to the purity of the species, even in improved line-bred forms. (Emrys Chew, Ph.D.)





Typical form is white on the abaxial side with distinctive tessellation on the adaxial side.

This species is proposed to be moved to Testaceae section L. M. Gardiner et al, Renziana 3: 8. Nov 2013
Common Name: สามปอยอินเดีย History Vanda tessellata is the type species of the genus Vanda: the first of its kind to be 'discovered' as 'Epidendrum tessellatum' (1795) and described as 'Vanda roxburghii' (1820) before the synonyms were reconciled definitively as 'Vanda tessellata' (1830).
