Default Vanda Roberts'd delight (blue)

Vanda Robert's delight (blue), this is the exact name on the label (wrong on the title), my first named vanda. A beauty! Not my merit for the bloom, but the flowers deserve to be shared.

Thank you for your comments. I'am glad you like it. Indeed, vanda is special and I really want to make one bloom.

And, as a curiosity to me and maybe to others, the price was low for a named and fully bloomed vanda: around 20$.

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.
