    You know..I love and hate these at the same time.

    I only hate them because I've yet to bloom one. I just need to put it in high catt light and leave it alone before I burn another one to smithereens in our 95+ degree weather again.

    I know what you mean. I have killed 2 vandas by frying them in the sun last summer.

    I am growing them indoors this year and guess what 2 spikes. I can't wait for the blooms!

    question, My Vanda is young and has total of 8 leaves. When can I expect spikes to grow?

    A vanda expert from my orchid club said that a vanda needs at least 5 sets of leaves to flower- that makes 10 leaves total.
