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

|How beautiful!! |
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.. 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.

|Wait, now you are confusing me! |
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?
