    Hey Amey, Sorry for any confusion - I can tell from the forums that you seem to be able to get almost anything to bloom. A first bloom on any plant is exciting though. To answer your question, yes - I do grow bonsai trees, though the one in my avatar isn't mine (unfortunately). I'll post a few shots of my own trees and others I like sometime soon. Thanks for asking!

    Beautiful orchid! I'm so jealous, I don't get enough light and I think my winters are too cold for Vandas. But I love looking!

    Very nice, Amey! Mine blooms 1 - 3 times a year and it seems that the blooms do get larger as the plant gets bigger. My plant is about 2 feet (not counting the roots) and the mature blooms are almost as big as my hand. Yours is lovely!!!

    Thanks for chiming in Tami ! Wow 2 feet, its a giant compared to my plant. I also hope it flowers multiple times a year for me. I checked the pictures of your sansai blue on the forum and they are stunning.

    That's a very beautiful blue vanda and I just love the tessellations - shows that it has retained the very attractive characteristic of V coerulea.Congrats for growing so well.
