Abstract: Extensive artificial hybridisation among members of some 86 genera of vandaceous orchids within the subtribe Sarcanthinae in Singapore over the past five decades has created many thousands of exotic hybrids. A small number of these are selected for commercial cut-flower production, while others are cultivated as pot-plants. Two classes of intergeneric hybrids are of special commercial importance as export cut-flowers, the bigeneric Aranda (Arachnis x Vanda) and the trigeneric Mokara (Arachnis xVanda x Ascocentrum) hybrids. Cytogenetic studies of these hybrids in recent years have provided information on the significance of ploidy levels and genomic constitutions on the horticultural performance of cut-flower cultivars, and also on the strategy for effective breeding in vandaceous orchids. © 1996 Kluwer Academic Publishers.
