    This is a wonderful, long term endeavor. Almost any worth while accomplishment takes years, but by the end of this you should have the patience of a saint. Hopefully someday I will see a 'WOW factor' resulting bloom posted here. I also wish you much luck in making a improved hybrid, somthing beautiful, but vigorous and healthy. AL

    Just curious. How long does it usually take for a pod just like your pic to have its very first flower?

    Sorry, Jason. I did not mean to hijack your thread.

    Hi Naoki,
    Dont worry about hijacking the thread its all relevent to the post.
    From what i read this pod could take upto 18 months to grow 2 years in flask and about another 4 years to flower so all in all im hoping for something realistically in around 7 n half to 8 years.
    long Long time but if its viable seed i will be looking forward to a flowering vanda on my 45th to 46th Birthday lol

    Definitely a pod soon getting huge within a month may exceed more than 2 -3 inches and take care, avoid from caterpillar/mealy bugs/. Congratulations Jason

    Thanks Zainal.... I didnt realise it would get so big. thanks for the tips on bug watching. Do you have any idea if this pod does prove viable how many flasks i could expect from it.

    Good luck Jason you need to wait at least in the tropical country the maturity of seed pod will be faster about 5 to 7 months depending on the hybrids/species in contrast at temperate country maybe more you need to wait patiently.
