The vandas are rooting to the palm trees and have really come around since removing from the baskets.

How beautiful!! Lovey dubby
The Vanda is gorgeous and I love the Cattleya. About the latter - you mentioned ( Laelia) anceps in your earlier post?

Very nice, Robert. You know, I'm thinking my Vandas do better hanging out in the trees than in the OC with my constant care.

Ursala, Anceps hybrid is all I could hunt down as far as a name on that beauty.
The big purple gets called a vanda, but you are correct that is a cattleya. As of now , the line up is orange, red, brownish/red, yellow and this purple.
Had given up on orchids a few years back, they where a bit needy.. Hilarious! Never had many blooms while they where in baskets but growing onto palm trees themselves has made a huge difference so I'm starting to fall in love again. A new plant store down from my work has a sign that says "orchids 5.99".. I'm going to go down and see what kind of trouble I can find. Angel

Wait, now you are confusing me! Smiling
The blue Vanda ( first two pictures) established on the tree, is indeed a Vanda/is vandaceous.
The other one which I called a Cattleya - anceps hybrid makes sense.
I am glad you are re-infected with the Orchiditis bug, what's not to like there, right?
