    Default Ascda Nok Lek

    This is a cross between Vanda Nok, and Ascda curvifolium in the awarded form "Mangkud". An interesting dusky colour - which I think is quite well shown in the pic.
    Largest flower 2 inches - those at the top are smaller but still growing , and there is still a bud or two to open ; a count of 14 eventually.
    I like these smoky mysterious colours, and we get so many wonderful ones in the orchids, the flowers outside in the garden are such simple creatures in comparison.

    That is my favorite shade of purple! <---that font color is named "darkorchid", curiously enough.

    Gorgeous ! I like the small yellow tips on the lip sides, they nicely contrast the blue flower.

    Purple passion! A beauty. Not only do I love the shade, I really like the pattern in the bloom as well. Excellent. Thank you for sharing it with us.

    You can see the orange undertones Asctm curvifolium has contributed.
