    Default Vanda Pachara Delight

    It surely brightens up my 'Vanda house' every day. Althought it is very difficult to capture the purple color, it is dark purple.

    I would not call it purple though. I would call it sky blue. It is one of the best blue hybrid Vandas IMO and it blooms more than once a year. I will grow this one again someday. Thank you for posting it.

    This is a jewel of an orchid Naoki. I must have one of these. If I buy one it's your fault, but that's O.K. I like giving in to temptation. AL

    Whatever the true color name, this vanda bloom is outstanding! Very nicely bloomed, Naoki!

    cheers,
