    I seem to be following you around the Board this morning (my time), but the flowers are to special not to view and leave a few comments. Another striking vanda. First Rate! AL

    I have yet to see a Vanda I didn't particularly care for. Man, I wish I could grow them.

    I'm wondering, flowers of my Vanda merilli are just brown, no yellow pattern. Your plant looks great.

    Salam En. Zainal, unfortunately I have never got the chance to smell it because it is hanged almost 10 feet above ground on a tree in my garden, but it seems to like it there and is now creating quite a big clump. So I'm happy nevertheless.
