The Lacquered Bloomer

Quick post: My Vanda merrillii is in flower! This unique Philippine endemic orchid has dark color and a built-in sheen looking like it has varnish cover. It is very interesting.

I am writing too much about orchids lately, aren't I? I am a what you could say a late-bloomer as an orchid collector. Now that most are in their blooming season, I am very much gaga over them. Orchids rule!

Congratulations on your bloom! Very beautiful.

I personally am afraid to go into orchids. They seem so delicate and I worry that I will just kill them.

Actually i have a garden more suited for tillandsias. I have limited orchid selection.
