    A couple of Vandas have bloomed, both are first time bloomers for me.
    The first one is a Vanda Charles Good Fellow and the second one is, are you
    ready, Vanda Jao phaya sapprie vacut rew prad, i know the names is too long
    I even have doubts about the name. Oh and this long named one has another spike
    forming.

    Enjoy.

    Randy, both are very nice and well flowered BUT the first one is not V. Charles Goodfellow. Your plant is a semi terete by the photo and Charles GF is a strap leaf. Flower shape wrong also.
    The second one...The label should read. V. Chao Praya Sapphire "then the rest you wrote" which is the variety name.

    Randy, I've seen some pics very similar to your first one, either in the forums or websearching, it sholdn't be hard to pic up the right name.

    I like both...i'm turning into a vanda lover big time! I'm impatiently waiting to hang mine in their nice new sunny room...and hoping the higher light levels will let me share some pics of blooms soon. In the meantime, thanks for sharing! Seeing everyone elses' blooms are keeping me working hard with mine.
