    I found it when doing a bit of an overhaul of my Vandas this morning - they don't get a lot of attention at this time of the year, just a dunking in a bucket every week or two. Sometimes they get sprayed when all the small vandaceous stuff gets sprayed, but I am having to do a rethink about a daily spray since I have had a few things where the developing flowers ( not on Vandas, but other stuff) have all got black spots and spoiled including a few plants I had lined up for our Show a week or two ago. I think I shall have to take all developing spike plants to one side of the greenhouse and keep the spray away from them - in winter at least.
    Back to this Vanda ; 7 flowers and buds. Not large ( 3 inch natural spread ) , but there is a lot of Ascda blood in the plant, and they may grow bigger before they are finished I don't know how long they have been out - not long I think.
    i can't tmember this plant flowering before, and there is no sign of an old spike, yet the name is quite familiar, no doubt from reading it when repotting etc. Could have been in my collection for years - many years ( like 10...) ! If so, it was worth waiting for I think. I don't think I have anything like it, or for the matter can't remember ever seeing one quite like it.
