    Default vanda pachara delight

    when i got this i was told it was a pachara delight, but it didnt have a tag, so i cant say for certain it isnt crossed with something else, i have another older tagged one that has never flowered for me cuz of bad management but is well on it's way to blooming for me soon i believe, so i dont have anything for personal comparison... anyway, im very excited to finally have a "blue" vanda flowering of my very own... WHY VANDAS? BECAUSE THEY FRIGGIN ROCK!!!

    the flowers are still young so they have a few more days to mature... oh, ya, and my camera totally made them a hell of a lot more blue than they are in reality... but one could always hope!! they are pretty dang blue!

    I am glad Shane that you now own a 'blue Vanda' as these as you know are really quite exceptional in the flower world. I love blue flowers myself. Lovely Shane! AL

    Beautiful! That's a wonderful shade of blue. All the Pachara Delights that I've seen are much darker. If there's a light version like your's, I've never seen it, but anythings possible. What ever it is, it's a beautiful vanda.
