    Lovely orchid blooms. I like how the blooms are presented on that branching spike. Cool!

    cheers,

    Ah, the real Vanda scandens! What a joy to see these, Zainal.

    By the way, your plant belongs to section Dactylolobata, which I erected, together with Jim Cootes: IPNI Plant Name Details

    I think the flowers are just too pretty. I like the shape, color...esp the edging around the blooms. I would love to find one of these hanging in a local nursery for sale.

    I know I've been working too long - when I see these, the first thing that came to mind was a bunch of paratroopers jumping out of an airplane. Where I work, one of the organizations teach Special Forces military member how to free fall (and land safely!) from aircraft...their uniforms aren't as nice as these, though!

    Beautiful! The long pedicels make for a great presentation. The flowers really jump out at you!
