    Margo,

    For reference purpose and to give you an idea what the "Black" variety looks like, I've attached a photo of it below. It's an AM/AOS awardee. I have this variety but it isn't in bloom yet.

    Nope! The Masao has pink-red-burgundy coloration similar to our V. Sanderiana but much more intense and darker in some areas! By the way the Masao is an AM/AOS awarded plant too.

    Here's a pic I found on the web for the Vanda Rev. Masao Yamada "Hawaii" for your comparison:

    Thanks for the fantastic pictures. I have the Robert's Delight 'Garnet Beauty' but unfortunately it thinks it's a foliage plant. My other vandas bloom for me but she does not.

    I just bought Robert's Delight 'Red Black' and 'Big Blue'. I sure hope they will bloom for me. The plants are blooming size but the 'Garnet Beauty' is also, she is just ornery I guess. I would love to get the 'Black' plant.

    I have 5 vandas in bloom at the present time, they are not all ornery.

    Marilyn, can you post some pics? I would love to see them! I have 4 blooming size (one of them doesn't like me), one smaller (at least another year to blooming size), 3 mini -blooming size and a bunch of babies that I am still not sure if they are going to make it.
