    Cool Vanda Princess Blue x Ascocenda Malibu Aristocrat

    Lovely, mini vanda cross. I really like the color on this one, but wish the flowers were flatter. I guess I need to move it to a larger pot this year.

    Thanks, Ron, but I like round vanda blooms to not curve at all; flat like a disk. I got this one without knowing how the blooms would look. I love the pink/blue coloring, just wished it was a flatter bloom. Some of them look good, but others curve forward like a cup shape. I do like the tessellation in the bloom though.

    Cheers,

    Nothing wrong with this Ascda Bruce, I agree with Ron. Top flower. Shame you didn't cut the old spikes off.

    A very nice vanda ,Bruce. Many 'modern' vandas and ascocendas tend to be cupped or slightly cupped but are very acceptable even on the judging bench. I consider yours as having good shape and judging from the picture seems to have very good substance as well. All in all a very good vanda.
