'Pachara Delight' is a classic "blue" orchid. The petals are a deep violet-blue and "tesselated"—spotted in a neat checkerboard pattern. Resembling over-sized pansies, most Vanda orchids can be recognized by the five rounded petals with a very small cup in the center. Northern gardeners like this species because it can thrive at lower temperatures than many other showy orchids since it is native to the Himalayan foothills from Assam east to China and Vietnam.
