    Cool Vanda Esther Araneta

    Trumpets should sound at the opening of these flowers. I looked at the pictures online and hoped the color would come out better for me since they weren't too nice in the pictures. And tah dah...I'm in love. I have always wanted a "white" vanda. These look white until you change the lighting. This one has a pink overlay that in bright sunlight overtakes the yellow at the bottom of the petals. It turned out to be a very nice plant after all. Now I can't wait to see the Vanda Apple White that I bought from the same vendor. The spike on it has ball at the end that means the flowers will be at least as big as these. Woo Hoo

    It is a semi-terete I think ? They don't do well in my northern clime ( poetic , ain't I ). But yes, proper white flowers are always great for western civilised people. I am told that in oriental places- some at least - White is the colour of mourning, so they will not be keen on white flowers.

    That hint of pink...I spent quite awhile staring at that picture. Each time you let a little different sun hit it the level of pink changed. It almost looked "coerulea" when the sun was setting. I have waited a long time for this one. I have it hanging so I can see it from where I am sitting indoors, along with a few others that are in bloom as well.
