I came across your blog recently and wish to point out an inaccuracy. The Vanda Miss Joaquim was not "discovered" by Agnes Joaquim. She succeeded in crossing the Vanda Hookeriana and Vanda Teres to create the Vanda Miss Joaquim. DNA research has now proved the male was Vanda Hookeriana. In 1893 it was presented to and recorded by H.N. Ridley, Director of the Singapore Botanical Gardens in April 1893 and samples and records are available in the Singapore Botanical Garden Herbarium and the critical plant journal of the time the "Gardener's Chronicle", June 24th 1893
Thank you for the corrections.
