    Cool Vanda Varakorn x Vanda merrillii 'Carmela'

    I thought no way this was big enough to bloom when it arrived and I was upset with myself for buying such a small Vanda. Then it spiked...gotta say it is worth what I paid. Loving these pretty flowers, the shape...I sure hope this one sticks around for a very long time.

    It has a mild fragrance that is very nice. It has the color and substance I have been looking for in a Vanda for awhile. It would make a great windowsill plant due to the size. There was a spike growing when it arrived, and inspite of that one blasting, it threw another out and bloomed in no time. It is a nice compact vanda...so far.

    Hi there, I just purchased one of these, it's VERY small, not even 5 inches tall. I see your post is a few months old. How's your Carmela doing of late? The blooms are soooooo lovely, it looks well worth the wait.
