This months orchid in the picture: Vanda coerulea
Vanda coerulea is truly one of the most stunning orchids of the lower mountain regions of Assam in India, southern Yunnan in China, Myanmar and Thailand. It grows at altitudes between 800 and 1700 meter in mixed dry and evergreen forests. Vanda coerulea loves hot to warm growing conditions but temperatures can drop in winter to 12°C or occasionally 10°C. Vanda coerulea is in nature endangered due to overcollecting and destruction of its habitat. Luckily it is popular with hybridizers who propagate and make new hybrids especially in Thailand. This orchid has been discovered and described by Griffith and Lindley in Edward's Botanic Register in 1847. With good light and humidity this orchid is easy in any greenhouse or conservatory. Once in bloom you will be amazed by its deep blue color and tessellated flower design.
