    Default Vanda Fantastic Fanfare 'Jed Soon'

    My first try at an orchid. Only one flower, but I find it quite striking. Recieved as a gift (4" baggie baby early June). Not supposed to bloom for 12 to 18 months!

    Thanks. Hoping it gets more and more flowers on future spikes, but for now I'll take beginners luck!

    I had no idea how large the bloom would get. Now that it has flattened out, it seems huge. My hand is touching the left (as you look at it) lower sepal!

    Nice flat flowers I believe the next season the presentation would be better.
