This Vanda coerulea cv I have had for at least 5 years and it flowers every year at Christmas. In summer it is in my unheated greenhouse and in October/November I bring it into the sitting room where the flowers develop. (Picture taken in the conservatory to get natural light)

What a great colour, Trond! I have Vanda rothschildiana on my wishlist. I would have thought that growing Vandas in more northern latitudes would require supplemental light or heat.... you prove me wrong!
Southwestern Nova Scotia,
Zone 6B or above , depending on the year.
