    Default Vanda Pimsai x V Pakchong 'Newland'

    This is it's first time to bloom under my care. i waited for two years and i remember this was a vanda that i never thought would survive. It was so dehydrated, its leaves are yellow-green and there are very few live roots when i bought it (it's cheaper and i seldom buy vandas with flowers.. i want to surprise myself haha). To add to that, this was a severe victim of a fire that broke out last December 2011.. well, too much of the story. here it is. it's flowers are tightly clustered though

    *****bottom picture*****
    here's how thy looked like after the fire, third degree burns

    The story tells more than just the photo though. It is a beautiful reward for your patience and care. And it is even more lovely to the eye once you hear what a hard time the poor plant has had. Great job!
