I have been into Vanda for the longest time, many blooms have come and gone, and I didn't start recording them until now, and here it is, my Vanda in bloom.

Vanda Dr. Anek x Vanda Fuchs Delight.

Huge blooms. It started with more pinkish color which I do not like so much, and gradually deepen into purplish.
The lighter shade and splotches on the upper side of flowers are the signature gene inherited from Vanda Sanderiana which I love very much.
Single spike with 10 blooms. This type of Vanda is not as prolific as Ascocenda or the nearest, Vanda Parchara Delight.

However, with all the nice blooms, some leaves were scorched by the afternoon sun. The back of the plant was severely burnt. Sunburn areas are not browning yet, hope it will heal with frequent water. By the way, can sunburn be cured sometimes?

Currently in spike.

Vanda JVB x Vanda Udom Gold.
A prolific bloomer, sometimes it grew multiple spike.
The new spike on top started to develop after it detected that the older spike (a leaf lower) rotted. :flowers:/>

Vanda Parchara Delight.
This one too, a super prolific bloomer. It has been very rewarding with all the care that I gave him. It can spike up to 3 times a year.

I have an unblocked west facing little planter which gets afternoon sun from 1pm all the way till nightfall. It's really windy but still, it has high tendency for my Catts and Vandas to get sunburn there. I have to acclimatize them slowly before removing the shade. That's where I place my Vandas and where they get their sunburn there too :ranting2:/> Anyhow, they bloom regularly.

Ascda. Mem. Tienchai. It's putting out a spike, so I pulled it out from the planter. Broke a lot of roots while wiggling it up. I tucked it into a clay pot directly without any medium so that I could bring it indoor and placed at the sill. I have decided to do it this way so that I could really look at the blooms as well as smelling it (if it were really to develop after all that damage on the roots). It will survive anyway, I guess.

Also another fragrant Vanda, Rhyncovanda Colmarie. Flower color is deep maroon, close to black. Waxy and extremely fragrant in the midday. Spicy scent if I could remember correctly. Prolific bloomer that could flower up to 3 times a year. Again, as it is spiking, so I decided to move it indoor for a better visual touch for myself. It is squeezed in a colored medium size clay pot with hole at the bottom. With its massive root system, I had to swirl them in and support the net pot with steel sticks.

I hope they both are happy staying inside with 6 hours of direct afternoon sunshine and a fan circulating for fresh air.

I have done a little touch up on my two potted indoor Vandas. It's really pleasant looking, and I love how the decorative fake weeds turns out to be lightly covering the roots.

hihi!

just wanna find out how are your vandas doing indoors? I see that they're in clay pot, as well as cermamic pot?
I just acquired a bloom size vanda in hanging basket, and I stay high-rise without balcony, wonder should I place it in pot to increase the humidity.

Thanks!

It's doing fantastically, with the humidity twirling around the roots. That's what they like. They spiked for me too.
