What a gorgeous flower. There's something unapologetically gaudy about the strapleafed vandas that makes them really special.
I used to go to the Miami International Orchid Show every year, and every year I'd end up bringing back some incredible Vanda or Ascocenda from Motes Orchids (305-247-4398) or r.f. orchids (Welcome to R.F. Orchids
). I never re-bloomed them as nice as they bloomed in Florida, but they were still some of the most spectacular orchids in my collection.
