    Interesting coerulea - without the tessellations. Hope the bud blasts is not a genetic trait.

    Just a thought... I see you have a spider crawling around on your flower. When I find those on my vanda, there usually is also tiny bugs present. Maybe the bugs are getting to your buds?? I don't know, it's a total guess. Its just that lately I keep noticing that if I have a vanda that is sick I usually also find spider webs down in the leaf axils. Hope you figure it out...the flowers are very nice.

    Hi Connie thanks for your suggestion I already observed this spider for quite sometime he never do anything except to catch the insects, most of the flowers I noticed some of this spider not this one keep changing the color according to the color of flower to fool the insects. I checked but the leaf axils so far so good clean.

    As Yew mentioned, an interesting specimen. Hopefully you will be able to solve the bud blast issue. In the mean time, you at least have a spider standing guard on the one bloom the plant did give you.
