    Thanks, Carolla. I love these very deep and richly colored orchids. I'll take some pictures of it in during the day too.

    Thank you, Zain. I had a similar one some years ago, I think another Robert's Delight but that was a very dark red. Unfortunately, the plant died after some years.

    Oh Jesus, I wish I could help you. LOL. But even I don't usually see vandas this dark for sale in local plant markets. Over here, rich pinks and yellow ones and lighter violets, with large saucer-like flowers, are more common.
