    Cool Vanda 'Blue Magic,' in spike.

    Hello, I just want to display the 7-8cm flower spike developing on one of my Vanda Blue Magic plants. It is the first time I have encouraged a spike to grow on one of these, and Vanda 'Exotic Purple,' is also in spike (3-4cm). I grow my Vanda orchids in large transparent pots with large grade bark. They are fed and watered/sprayed regularly and stand on a humidity tray.

    Hi BigSteve,

    Thank you. Indeed, I hope they turn out the correct blue colour as they were before. :-)
