JVB plant growth habit typically monopodial, as with the rest of the Vanda alliance; robust and yet, as a tetraploid, fairly slow-growing. Leaves semi-terete, slender but rigid and deeply channelled. A mature plant, when grown properly, has little difficulty producing one or two upright spikes, each carrying 5-8 flowers.

History Johannes van Brero (1864-1940) was born at Soerabaja and worked at Batavia as an official in the colonial postal service before he was pensioned off, aged 55 (1919).
He relocated to Bandoeng, where he decided to embark on a second career as an orchid pioneer. He must have made an acquaintance with van Deventer, who was departing just as he was arriving. Indeed he would go on to deliver many more significant and lasting contributions to orchid hybridising in Southeast Asia - not least of which was the making of his 2nd hybrid (1936), which he named after his daughter Josephine (1906-96).
I have not yet established whether van Brero operated Tjipaganti Orchid Nursery from his residence in North Bandoeng. The home address at 86 Nylandweg (listed in an old phone directory) is today renamed Jalan Cipaganti.
He died just before the Japanese invasion and occupation, which was then followed by the war of independence. But his daughter, JVB the woman, was interned by the Japanese and later emigrated to her ancestral heartland of North Holland, in a European continent she was experiencing for the first time.

...the only truly historic orchid from Java during the pre-war Bandoeng era is JVB (4n), which was imported into Singapore by John Laycock in 1934, and later acquired by Tan Hoon Siang to produce TCY 'SBG 770'. Cuttings of the same 4n clone have been used to make all 170 JVB registered hybrid progeny. [Emrys Chew 03/12/2017]
