Aranda Noorah Alsagoff
Aranda Noorah Alsagoff played a major role in putting Singapore on the orchid breeders' map and contributed significantly to an export industry worth as much as $16 million per annum during the 1970s and 1980s. It was first grown in 1972 by Syed Yusof Alsagoff, a leading orchid hybridizer in Singapore. The orchid was named after his daughter.

Aranthera Anne Black
Aranthera Anne Black is the first VIP orchid of the Singapore Botanic Gardens. It was named after Lady Black, the wife of the former Governor of Singapore, Sir Robert Brown Black. With its unique scorpioid shaped flowers on a long spray together with long extended vase-life, this popular cultivar is still on the list of cut-flower orchids for export.
