    Default Vanda with glauca colored foliage?

    Has anyone seen vandas with what I can only call glauca colored foliage? I have one that is blue/gray. About the color of a spruce that is blue/gray. It stands out among all the other plants. I can't find any info on this.

    I assume you mean strap-leaved vandas. Not that I know of. Do you know where it might originate from? Will help to narrow down the ID if any.
