    Mine has actually adapted quite well to a "vanda vase" and is watered every other day in an East bay window with supplemental light. This might be the "confidence builder" it takes for me to bloom the more difficult vandas...I hope so..

    Thanks everyone for the kind and encouraging words!

    Clint, you always offer kind & encouraging words, so it's the very least we can do. You know, it's the "What goes around, comes around" situation. I enjoy the group on this forum for that very reason. I will bet you succeed with those "more difficult vandas"!

    Cheers,

    Rob
