    Default Vanda Roberts Delight and Ascocenda Praphathom Gold and others in bloom

    Cheers,

    Finally the rains have come and it seems that the plants really loved the rains.
    A lot of my Vandas are in spike now, and here are the first to open up.

    The first set is my V. Roberts Delight, this one seems to take forever to open
    up I've been waiting for 3 weeks for this baby to fully open but its just taking its
    own sweet time. I got bored of waiting and finally took a photo of it. Will
    update when it fully opens.

    Next is my Ascocenda Praphathom Gold, been a very reliable bloomer its about
    3rd or 4th time it bloomed since Nov/09. Oh thanks to Roy for the name.

    Next would be my V. Mini Palmer x (merillii x insignis), I have 2 of them both
    are in spike but this one opened sooner than the other. Very nice fragrance.

    last would be a noid (i think it may be aranda).

    Thats it for now, will update the thread when my other Vandas opens.

    Beautiful vandas - all of them. I think Mini Palmer should read Mimi Palmer.

    Yes the rains have come here too and the orchids are really rejoicing after the long hot, dry spell. Apart from the vandas the catts,the oncidums, the dendrobes are also putting out buds. But the most dramatic response has been from the catasetum : after the 3 months of leafless dormant period, all of them are putting out new growth and spiking.
