    Very beautiful!

    I tried growing those several times and I eventually gave up. They keep dying on me.
    I think my greenhouse is really just not appropriate for most vandas.

    Wow what a beauty?? Did you grow this in a cool greenhouse?? I already killed two plants of kimballiana. I have no problem blooming vanda coerulea, at least once a year but couldn't keep Hol. alive. or bloom them. I heard Hol. wangii can tolerate warmer condition, but it's hard to find it in North America.

    My heater in that area is down the far end and is set on 52f the watering goes on twice a day in the summer and they are only watered twice a week in the winter, that is a coerulea behind it and they are both a meter from the outside door which has been open since Nov. I think they are like all vanda types and like plenty of fresh air. Some of mine are outside now till the first frosts.
