Vanda coerulea

adam_in_the_uk(South UK)June 27, 2008

I have several clones of these in flower now, this one is the biggest, has 3 spikes with around 17 flowers on each spike. When it was small it flowered with a few flowers on a spike, but seems to have maxed out at 17 per spike. If you grow this species, or any Vanda they flower much better with higher humidity, and take around a week for the flowers to fill out, when they first open they are tiny and almost white, then the colour appears gradually over a few days. This plant is 4N x 3N (tetraploid x triploid) and very vigorous, has several keikis on it.
