    Received this orchid about two months ago and within two weeks it went in spike. I just got done 'dunk' watering it for the second time today when these photos were taken. Sorry, no photo's actually in the tub as this would be to graphic for you the audience and I would hate to see the Vanda in question turn from a bright green to all white with embarassment. The more distant shot captures the true color best. AL

    I still do a good ol'dunk for vandas. Some of the really big guys appreciate it. I add sea kelp to the dunking barrel. And if your vanda is severely dehydrated it is one of the best ways to rehydrate.

    I love the color & size of the flowers plus they are long lasting. I got myself 2 "patcharas" at the Redland Orchid Festival in May and they are still in bloom.

    Beautiful! Patchara Delight is one of the best vandas you can buy. I haven't seen your version 'Dark Blue' before. But there doesn't seem to be much variation in the different versions of Patchara. To me the flowers look pretty much the same on all the different versions. It's definately an spectacular orchid.
