    Default Vanda cindy banks 'bill's choice' rebloom

    This Vanda is a favorite of mine as it is growing all the time (even grows well in winter) and it has these exotic blooms. Three blooms last August, four blooms and larger this time round. Smells like Chateau Du Welch's besides.

    One of my favorites.

    The original clone of Cindy Banks was from Florida. Tom Ritter and Louis Del Favero went into together and cloned the original plant. Louis Del Favero still has many of the original plants. Now he propagates by division. I bought a few over the years.

    Actually there are two keikis though its impossible to see them in this photo. Thanks for noticing Naoki. My photography still leaves something to be desired. I will blame the camera, though the photographer ain't so good either. If my photos here drive anyone crazy, I just hope that sanity returns to you soon! I enjoyed the background information on this Vanda Cathy.
