    Default Princess Mikasa Blue first rebloom!

    I got this little beauty this April with 2 flowers. Since then she has put out fat new roots and a spike with 5 blooms. I think she likes my sunny little balcony! The flowers are around 2 inches across and the plant is a small one, color on the blooms is a deep violet that did not come across in the pics.

    Very pretty! Princess Mikasa is one of my favorite vandas. It's very popular here in south Florida. It's usually a reliable and frequent bloomer. There's a nice pink version available also. Good growing.

    Thanks guys for the kind words! Jeffrey, yes we do have pretty low humidity here but I try to spray all my orchids at least once a day.
