    Default Vanda (Velthus x Pink River)

    My only reliably blooming Vanda. Big pink things that last a long time, but the spike only has about 5 or 6 blooms, and I get only the one spike per year.

    I like it quite a bit.

    It might only bloom once a year but definately worth the wait.
    Great colour & shape.
    Superb.

    Well, what I'm actually bitter about is the ones which haven't – or seemingly will never – bloom. I'm just taking it out on this one.

    I like it a lot, I guess I just wish my one consistent blooming Vanda weren't pink. Although I like pink. Anyhow, I have two more with first-time-ever spikes right now, so my unjustified vanda-related-bitterness is hopefully soon to be at an end.
