    A very rare form of Vanda hindsii which is normally a mottled brown color. This Vanda is found in New Guinea but is also found in far North Queensland, the only Vanda found in Australia. The pictured color form was found in Cape York North Queensland amongst a clump of the normal color form some years ago. 95703D42-08B2-487D-9F10-D9D9E01E1B63.jpeg 323CA7C7-33D5-464B-A4AD-CBC8622810C5.jpeg 3900DA12-6327-4C65-9F0C-3BBAF47E94F8.jpeg

    That is a beautiful plant...if you could only choose one species to live in Australia, that is a fine one!

    Great flowers! They "look" fragrant. Are they?
