    Wink Vanda Siam Ink in bloom

    My strap- leaved vandas are spiking now and V Siam Ink is the first to bloom.

    This colour is really difficult to capture on digital camera. There's a lot of colour shift depending on direction of the light. The colour of the blooms in the second picture is closest to the original.

    I like the way it has a hot pink/purple splash pattern radiating out from the center of the flower...Very beautiful, Yew! You have some of the most unusual orchids...Betty :-)

    Now that my vanda types are growing a little better, maybe i'll have lovely pics like yours to share someday. I love vanda flowers, and yours' is the perfect color. I love purple... even if in orchids it's called blue.

    Some of mine are spiking now with the spring but nothing as dark as that one. It's very nice and I wouldn't mind one.

    Thanks everyone for your comments. Yes this is one of my favourite vandas and the flowers arebig. 4ins (10cm) across, with 8 flowers on the spike and all very well arranged, unlike some which tend to be overcrowded on the spike.

    I like the color in the 2nd picture best, Yew. That deep purple color is wonderful.
