    You are right, Ed. When I first bought this one from the gardening section of a local hardware, the flowers were dull. Three days after exposure to full sunlight on this east-facing wall, the color became more intense and, as you say, glowing. I had to wait for the shadows to take over later in the day so I can take a good photo. Under direct sunlight, the violet appears so bright that one cannot make out the outline of the individual petals in the photograph.

    After all these years in my garden, I finally discovered the correct identity of the purple pink tessellated orchid in the first two photos. It is Vanda Taib (V. Hilo Rose x V. Doctor Anek)

    They are lovely! These semi teretes never fail to reward their owners with their frequent and colourful blooms. Your posts have rekindled my interest in them and I think I'll start collecting them again. In the 60s and 70s they formed the second largest part of my collection.

    Harvey, do you mean the pink one on the first page of this thread?

    The first post has 4 images. Starting with the third image. That's the one I really like.

    Kinda gradient lavender with orange/red lip. And the yellow green streak in the petals. Lovely!

    Does it have a name?

    That's the Vanda Mevr. L. Velthius x Vanda Pong Tong. Very flat, quite large delicate blush colored flowers.

    I'm adding it to my vanda wish list, but it may be too dry here for me to try growing one here.

    My local grocery store sells vandas from time to time. They sell them completely inside a, I assume clear plastic, open top cylinder. I did read the instructions on the display once. And it indicated to fill the vase with water with the plant then after 5 minutes to dump the water out and leave the vanda in place.

    But I haven't tried one.

    My friend who is visiting her daughter in California posted a photo online. There were all these orchids for sale and some of them, the vandas, were in containers that exactly fit your description. Now that explains it. Of course, over here, that would be unthinkable, growing vandas that way.

    If the humidity is quite low, you could increase watering to twice daily. Then you could put water in containers beneath your vandas to increase the humidity. Low humidity causes vandas and their kin to lose their leaves, resulting in ungainly looking, leggy plants with leaves only at the top portion.

    I am happy and humbled by the fact that I, with my modest collection of orchids, am able to inspire someone of your stature, Yew Sung. I hope you can still find many of the semi-teretes that were in your garden all those years ago.
