    Default Darwinara Charm 'Blue Star' ACC/AOS

    Neof. falcata x Vascostylis Tham Yuen Hae. A fragrant mini that blooms 2 -3 times a year. She doesn't like the summer heat here in NW FL but she still tries hard. She likes more shade and cooler temps than most vandas. My thumb is in one of the pics so you can judge the size. I've had her for about 3 years.

    Small and elegant, this looks like a wonderful orchid and it sounds like a consistent bloomer. Fragrant to! I want one!

    Thanks, AL. She is special; the fragrance is sweet like a light perfume. Not heavy. Your word 'elegant' fits the best. I think the spurs are neat.
