Vanda (Varakorn X merrillii) 'Carmela' in bloom Male

We have a couple of these and one seems to be in bloom most of the time. Yours is a very nice dark color. In our the fragrance seems to strongest in the morning. Very tough plant. Seems to be able to withstand some abuse and neglect.

I do not have humidity problems in the summer that is why it is outdoors....but in the colder months I have to bring it indoors and place it near the electric humidifier with a fan even if my building has a steam water heater.

The Manhattan summers can be very humid=we breathe water under the subways while waiting for the trains....yet the colder months can be very dry....
