    Default A Golden Aranda?

    This is in bloom right now. I'm don't know what kind of vanda it is but the flowers' shape looks like it's an aranda. Leaves are semi-strap.

    btw angel, is that the mount behind it? it seems that it is made of some charcoal and wood
    rolled in a net.... I have some lying around here may be a good idea to try.

    The green material is actually a hard plastic net. The "wood" is the metal rods that form the skeleton. We saw something like it in the newer landscapes in Davao and decided to give it a try.

    We made a concrete square base. With some metal rods and plastic netting material, we formed a sort of pillar. Then we filled it with charcoal.

    Well, it's proving more practical than wood which rots away after some time because of the daily watering.

    Thanks Angel, I really love this approach. I have tons of scrap woods lying
    around.

    Will try to find a photo I took of the orchids while we were setting them up so you'll get a clearer picture Randy.

    As promised Randy. Here's some of that stuff I was describing a while ago. This is work in progress. I was still in the process of transferring some of the other vandas from the old wood trunks. I just topped off the pillars with dendrobiums planted directly into the charcoal filling.

    Yes Bruce, it is more practical, and would save more trees from being cut.
