    Default Two Vandas;

    I hope that Iam not guilty of repeating myself - I came across these two today, on a routine watering, and could not remember having shown them before - and can't find them in my database, but some nagging thought tells me I have. Senior moments - I have had a hard few days- won't bore you with the details.

    Vanda Chindavat x Tawaseesuksa. Surely V sanderiana breeding taken to an ultimate height ?
    I do love my miniatures, but oh my goodness, I do love these chaps too !

    Vanda Kuiltana Delight 'Red' Two nice spikes giving a total of 13 flowers.[erhaps starting to go over a bit - so may have been out for a couple of months - when I looked in my database perhaps I didn't go back far enough.

    Dear Bruce - if I am repeating myself, please delete this post ?

    Both Vanda photos show some very plush blooms. Great growing Geoff! I, living and growing Vandaceous type orchids here in the high desert can understand the long experience and patience it must of taken to get so many of your Vanda's to this point. AL

    Very beautiful indeed, especially that sanderiana-type bloom.

    You're not boring me at all, Geoff. If this is boring, then please bore me some more! Beautiful vandas you got there.
