    Default A baker's dozen of Vanda Orchids in bloom

    My large flowered vandas in flower at the moment ( including three Renanthera species); I've been meaning to put them together for some time, but always waiting for everything to be at its best , which of course never happens - the large yellow has gone off too far to include, and the best whites are only in bud , otherwise there might have been a better colour range. At least seven of these Vandas were repotted in March , and maybe the flower count is a bit down for that reason ; there is only one 10 here , apart from a double spiked plant with a 6 and a 7 ( but the seven is all buds ) but then I reckon 10 is good , even exceptionally good, for this country.
    names ; the Rens, storei to the left and right. philipinensis in the middle.
    Vandas, back row Ascda Haad ravi x Lena Golba, Kultana delight 'Red' (double spiked), Kultanas Ruby 'French Knickers'. Susan delight.
    Front row ; Chindavit x Tawasuka , Ascda Chiangmai Gold, Orglades Gold Spot x (Fuchs Gold x Bangkhuntien Gold) , Robert delight 'Kumtanas dark red', Fuchs delight, and sanderiana.
