Vanda Orchid Blue Magic by Mararda Vanda Orchid Blue Magic by Mararda
A close up of the flowers that are produced bu the Vanda 'Blue Magic,' orchid. Vanda orchids are natural epiphytes.

I have acquired this specimen very recently and I am in love with it; I do not care if that sounds weird; I just love orchids and I desire to be a specialist breeder one day.

Yup, it's a fine Vanda! They're not that difficult to grow but they need a lot of (sun-)light to produce flowers. :)

Well, everybody who started with orchids mentioned something like "I love them" - and a year later "love" became "addiction" ... :P

Beautiful. I have recently fallen under the orchid spell myself and am trying to learn more before getting one.
