    Default Blooming Vanda and Dendrobium in a Mixed Planting

    Here are some of my vandas and dendros putting on a colorful display. The heaviest blooming usually occurs during the hottest months (March to May) in the Philippines.

    Thank you all for your kind remarks.
    I like orchids best when they look as natural as possible so I try my best to do away with shade cloths or artificial potting media as much as I can. Works well with the vandaceous subtribes and many dendros.

    It's also nice to mix them in with other bushes and flowers whenever possible.

    Yes Fren, many of the most gorgeous orchids and tropical flora thrive over here. But it has been soooooo hot lately. Cotabato has been experiencing 34 deg Celsius (93 F) but other parts of the Philippines (like in Luzon) are up to 37 degrees Celsius or maybe higher. Have to water the orchids twice a day.
