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.

It is my favourite colour, and difficult to get naturally with orchids (infact quite alot of plants). Also, Vanda orchids need alot of care; but I love giving them care. :)
