    Wink Kagawaras in bloom

    Some time ago I posted pics of Kgw Christine Low. This time I'm posting pics of Kgw CL and Kgw Seri Perak for comparison. Unfortunately 2/3 of the latter's blooms have dropped since it had been flowering for more than 6 weeks and the rains have caused havoc to the flowers. Nevertheless I have included it in the pic to show that kagawaras are than just reds and orange.Another reason for including it at this stage of the flower life is to show how longlasting the flowers are , and how they don't fade even until the last flowers have dropped.

    *To all Filipino growers; Kagawara ( Ascocentrum x Renathera x Vanda ) are easy to grow in our climate, outdoors 24/7 and are very free-flowering and floriferous. The mature CL in the pic has 3 spikes as you can see and the flowers are 2" in size. They do need lots of light, though.
