    Very nice color! Many of my vandas bloom twice a year at least if they are big and if you give them all the light and heat that they can tolerate!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Very nice indeed.
    I think you really need natural sunlight to bring out the blue in photos on theses Vanda's.My plant indoors looks a deep amethyst(actually enhances the tessalation) but out doors a real nice blue.

    Ok, can a plant like that survive in my apartment? Eastern sun exposure, gets pretty hot in the summer so I have to use the AC's. And it get pretty dry and again hot in the winter, when they remember to put the heat on. Sometimes they turn the heat on when its in the 60 outside.
    Im just trying to figure out what would survive in my apartment.

    None of my vandaceous worked in my apartment. The water needs were too great, I took them back to work to take advantage of having a greenhouse. I just put sold tags on them and give them all the care they deserve. It might be relatively possible to house them if you had some hydrophonic system to utilise.
