    Cool Rhynchostylis coelestis var. pink

    This plant arrived a few months ago and after settling in has sent up it's first spike. I love the pink and cannot wait to see my purple one bloom someday. It has a scent that is somewhat like an inexpensive perfume or air freshener. lol Not bad, but not as nice as some. You will see i've put bamboo fronds on my shelves, I am using them to help deflect the days hottest sun off the vanda as I have a few leaves burning here and there.

    Very "Pretty In Pink". By the way it looks like your orchids are in the 'pink' also. Go out and buy some more orchids with pink blooms and you'll be " painting the town pink". Lovely flower spike Connie! AL

    it's interesting, that this species appear in so many different colourations. There is blue, pink and white variety. All so beautiful.

    Beautiful! I love the colors. That should be spectacular when it gets larger. I'd like to see the purple one when it blooms.
