    I'm thinking the leaves may be the differece in age of petals or growing conditions. This is the only really purple-y vanda i have ever seen...most tend to go more to blue or pink

    well I've looked at a lot of purple vandas and I still can't find a name, the only one I saw that comes close is Vanda Valerie Delight from the one photo I saw. You are right about the color it is very purple and when I looked at your photos again I see it has the same violet hue.

    the seller of my vanda was sure of what he had of the name, he did not know the "other half"...I hope I hope I can get mine to bloom again, but it is very cool here

    I hope it does rebloom for you, mine is on it's second spike now and the flowers have a good keeping quality. Like the pic of your dog looks like a border collie, I have a border collie mix and he is wonderful, if I could clone him I would, so sane compared to my other two wild ones.
