    Default a couple of vandas walk into a bar...

    a while back i was drinking and orchiding and decided it was time to expand my vanda world... it was getting about closing time for the flower market and i was bargaining my ass off... instead of just being happy with getting a really decent discount on one, i opted for an AMAZING discount on two! at the moment i didnt mind that they were the same cross, and i guess i still dont... now that they are flowering i find it very interesting to see the differences between the two... i'm assuming they are from the same flask yet i find their shape and color to be rather varied... now i guess i get to decide which one i want and which one to give as a gift ;-) so here is V.lamellate x Mem.

    Shane, Shane, Shane drinking and bargaining, seriously? Where's your pill popping friend? You guys would have made out like bandits!! You could have gone for a hat trick, then you'd have the choice of the best of 3. I like the colouration on the first it's really nice, but the curly quality of the second is cool.

    I suppose you'd just have to check out the refreshments also.... With my luck it would be a sand bar !!!!!
