    They are indeed lovely. I've become a big fan of the Ascocendas and have a couple. Its unfortunate, (for me), that they are rather expensive for the most part.

    Sadly they have been got at by the breeders, and have got as big as Vandas ; so where is the point ? The early ones were small and neat, and had lots and lots of flowers. In the unholy name of flower size they have been bred on, so that now there is no difference in plant size, or of flower size, but have lost the big flower count too.
    They follow in the footsteps of Cymbidiums and Phalaenopsis in this respect. Shakespeare had one of his characters ( I think it was Pistol, in Henry the Fifth ) , say "Lets kill all the lawyers" - what a clever chap Shakespeare was, apart from the fact that I'm a lawyer too - hmm - must recondiser that....lets say "let's kill all the hybridisers..."
