( None of my plants is 3 ft tall ! )
    More stressed than mine? I don't think so,Geoff - just more ideal conditions in your place. Seeing your many strap leaf vandas in bloom it's not so surprising as I believe both strap leaf vandas and renantheras like warm to intermediate conditions while the conditions here are warm to hot, with the night temperatures rarely below 79F and the diurnal range 6 - 8F.

    Twice a year blooming is about average for renantheras and hybrids here, while some bloom 3 times a year.I've had my fair share of renantheras and hybrids and have killed off most of them. Btw I still have 2 varieties of Rnps Lena Rowold, very temperamental bloomer; and what I thought to be Ren Nancy Chandler which actually is Nancy Chandler x storeii after checking and deciphering the very faded name tag.

    Do you have the Ren Singaporean ? This is very popular at the moment and appears to be easier to grow. I have given up on Ren Prince Akihito after 3 failed attempts.

    Congrats and syabas on your success with the vandaceous orchids.

I do not have any Renanthera's, vandas, or others quite like this in growth habit. Any why, I think it was neat if they do grow this way! AL
    I've just recently bought this plant from the vendor and he wouldn't even divulge where he sourced it from. All he would say was that it is very free-flowering and that would mean about 4 times a year. The first blooming was from the axil of the second pair of leaves. From the dark green leaves I would guess that it must have been grown under at least 50% shade.

    Thanks everyone for looking in and for your comments.

    @ Betty: Thanks, Betty. I just hope it blooms in my lifetime - whatever is left of it.

    Thanks for your response to my questions Yew Sung. I wish I had a Renanthera that bloomed four times a year! Oh well I have only had most of my orchids for a few to several months (not even close to a year). I am still learning......time will tell. AL

    Hi Yew Sung ; here's a pic of my Nancy Chandler ( acquired 30/10/10) in a 4.5inch pot. Has a new root growing, so it has started on the long road to flowering. How long do you reckon ?
    My suspicion from what I see and what I hear, is that in your conditions they grow too well, and don't get stressed - and conversely in UK the opposite may be true, which will be why I flower them easily. But I suspect it will take me at least two years to get this big enough for the optimistic me to look for spikes. I see that it is 25% R.monachica, which blooms for me on a plant only inches high , and the other 75% is R.storei - mine is maybe 20 inches or so and has bloomed two or three times. So I am thinking that I should not have to wait until its 3 feet .
    In case you wonder - the ghostly finger and thumb are mine - I always wear latex gloves in the greenhouse , otherwise constant exposure to water gets my skin chapped.

    Thanks Yew for sharing this very attractive plant. I am still looking for my first renanthera.

    That's a very healthy looking plant, Geoff. I agree that it would take about two years to bloom. Most of the storeii crosses today are made with the 4n variety of storeii and this makes its hybrids bloom at quite a short height.It took Malaysian breeders a long time to obtain the short blooming variety via Hawaii, no less.. Unfortunately we still have a lot of crosses here with the older, taller storeii.The only saving grace is that these crosses have bigger branched spikes and arguably more brilliant colours.A good example is Renanopsis Lena Rowold.

    Wow: I want this one!

    @Geoff: I think I must have bought Nancy Chandler from the same vendor. I have two, which are the same size and are doing well.

    this must be a prolific bloomer, judging by the number of old spikes in the photo. A lovely bright red too.

    Yes, Angel, it is very prolific, blooming at every leaf axil, but always on one side only - the other side is bereft of any blooms. BTW it is in bloom right now with close to 90 flowers.
