This Vanda is a miniature that has proven itself a reliable bloomer, putting out one or two spikes each winter. I got two spikes this year. Unlike some of its full size brethren, it doesn’t need a ton of sun to bloom. It smells to me mostly like lemon, but also sweet, as if it has a hint of vanilla to go with the lemon. It’s not a scent that fills a room, but is detectable up close.
