    Cool Vanda Paki

    When I bought this plant I never expected the flowers to look like the pictures, or to be able to keep it alive and bloom it. However, it is one of the easiest of my vanda's to care for and the flowers look exactly like advertised. It blooms on it's own schedule 2 or 3 times a year with 3 flowers per spike being standard.

    My vanda section is just outdoing it'self this year so the pictures should keep coming. I don't know what I did, but I even have an Arachnis type in double spike right now. Can you say "happy dance"?

    Vanda tricolor and Vanda cristata certainly combine for a unique look. I can see why it is a favorite.
