My first indigo violacea to bloom in the hot (+32C) top shelf …. Few more in spikes … color is like blue African violets.

Fragrant is like a strong sweet and spicy cinnamon sugar.

It’s sequential so more buds over next month or two.

Now I'm really jealous Leslie. I've wanted one like this forever and never found one that was a dependable bloomer. Care to
name your source?

Angela, I got this from Tenshin Gardens from Taiwan. You can email Matt to see if they have some more. He sends plants to US few times a year.

You can also look up OrchidPhile (Carri), Orchids Limited, Bredren's Orchids, Big Leaf Orchids and Krull Smith. These nurseries have strong plants.

Thank you Leslie. I've done business with Orchids Ltd. and Big Leaf. Don't know the others you mentioned.

Those 2 are among top here in the USA. Carri at OrchidPhile is a source if you want select plants. A lot of times its REALLY hard to get select plants as they are usually not mass produced. Thanks for sharing. Hope you (and everyone) can keep cool in this heat.
