    Default Vanda Pakchong Blue

    Vanda Pakchong Blue is in bloom again. I really love the tessellations on this vanda. Reminds one so much of the tessellations on one its parents V coerulea. This time there are fewer blooms - just 10.

    12 - 15 flowers can be expected from a good spike. But I must say this time the flower form is very good and the colour more vibrant. I have seen a well-grown plant with 2 spikes of 15 flowers per spike and having 2 keikis too. This was an awesome plant.

    WOW! AMAZING COLOUR! I am still shocked that we don't see much inter-generic breeding between these kind of vandas and phals!
