    Default Vanda suavis

    I got it for more than 5 years( first time blooming in my hand) though the plant is very huge and tall but I wonder why he refused to bloom accordingly as compared to other close relative like tricolor. This is one of the most beautiful clone and relatively good size flower however it turn up very small one and got some deformity on this flower, I hope next season it will improve their presentation.

    Beautiful example, Zain. I have a clone. But not anywhere nice as yours. Mine seemed to refuse to bloom until I looked down into the leaf axils and noticed it had tried several times to spike and all were damaged by thrips at the very start of the spike.
