    Default Vanda Chao Praya Sapphire "Vacut Rew Prad"

    My Vandas are starting to bloom again, and this is the first one to open up. Although I am a bit disappointed with some of it as the lip is quite twisted.
    But overall its a nice show.

    Did the bud get smashed slightly before the bloom opened?
    Nice flower, smooshed lip or not!

    Thanks Decoy, if you look past the lip it is beautiful... I just wish I know what went
    wrong there so that it can be avoided in the next blooming.

    What is best if you just bought the item with flowers (damage or not) to identify rather than buying without flowers with name which is doubtful to some experts.
