    Default Summer Vanda Joy

    My summer vanda joy. The first pic is Ascda Crownfox Honey Gold 'Tangerine' HCC/AOS. This jewel has bloomed 19 times in 2 1/2 years and smells like orange blossoms. She is 5 feet from plant top to root tip. She's my favorite!!
    The second pic is Ascda Princess Mikasa 'Rosado' (Royal saphire x coerulea) HCC/AOS. She blooms 2 - 3 times a year.
    The last pic is a sale 'chid I picked up for $5 five months ago. She is Vanda tessellata 'Aurea' x Vasco Somsaks Delight 'Perclad' and this is her first blooming for me. What a surprise! Her blooms are only about one inch across and she smells sweet like a light perfume.
    Big Red [Okaara Scarlet Queen 'Chile Pepper' (Renst. Queen Emma x Ascda. Yip Sum Wah) AM/AOS -aka 'monster vanda'] is in spike, as is Vanda Sansai Blue 'Acker's Pride' (Crimson Glory x coerulea) FCC/AOS. Love vanda summer!

    Thanks, Margo. All I do is water every morning, tho sometimes I miss a day or two, and fert full strength with 20-20-20 (using a spray bottle) every 2-3 weeks. I'm so excited; this is my first 3 spiker!

    I love vanda summer too. Except the two that I have are unhappy campers in the week of 103F+ temps we've been having!

    Very nice. I'm going to try to follow your recipe but I may need to mist them more than once a day with this 103 heat we have been having.

    Thanks, Tami! I think they need stronger fertilizer... Or... I will just show them your pictures and tell them: that is what they are supposed to do!
