Vanda Princess Mikasa 'Blue Velvet' 4" mericlone NFS
Vanda Princess Mikasa
(Royal Sapphire X coerulea)
Princess Mikasa is one of the smaller growing Vandas that were once called Ascocendas. From Ascocentrum curvifolium (now Vanda curvifolia), it inherits a more compact size plant, somewhat smaller flowers, though in greater number a, when mature, the ability to bloom with 2 or more stems of flowers, sometime more than once a year.
In general, Vandas like bright indirect light and warm temperatures (65-85 degrees night to day), but because Princess Mikasa is over 50% Vanda coerulea, some cool tolerance is possible. Vandas are also best in a coarse medium. Water and fertilizer regularly using a liquid or water soluble fertilizer twice a month (see ours in the "Supplies" section).
Leafspan: about 12".
NEAR FLOWERING SIZE, BUT NOT CURRENTLY IN SPIKE OR BLOOM!!!
