    Default Vanda Heaven

    It's been vanda heaven this summer. Okaara Scarlet Queen 'Chile Pepper' aka (Monster vanda) bloomed for the first time this year, and Mokara Chark Kuan Orange has it's first spike also but is not open yet. Princess Mikasa 'Rosato' is blooming for the second time this summer. Ascda Crownfox Honey Gold 'Tangerine' is blooming for the ninth time in two years and has a 10th spike too! Darwinara 'Charm', a mini that looks like a blue neo is in spike, and Vanda Sansai Blue 'Acker's Pride' will be open in a week or so. Hope you enjoy the pics. Tami

    An older pic of Sansai Blue; the blooms are as big as my hand. The new spike should be open in a week or so. Second blooming this summer.

    Ascda Crownfox Honey Gold 'Tangerine'. The plant is 5 feet from leaf top to root tips. 10 bloomings in 2 years - incredible beauty.

    Thanks all, the vanda type orchids are our favorites.
    Hope all of you in Texas, Louisiana, and Arkansas are safe from the storm.

    Tami the Ascda Crownfox Honey Gold 'Tangerine is wonderful! I want a yellow vanda type!! WOW.

    The storm is just reaching us in Northwest Arkansas. The wind in starting to blow in gusts and we are getting some rain, but nothing scary just yet. Thanks for thinking of us.

    cheers,
