    Thanks a lot. I do my best to keep them in good condition. Now I must get them blooming again next time. And of course I'm looking forward to get the seedling orchids to bloom.

Most people don't have room for greenhouses, and you can't put them oudside 24/7. So when they're in vases you can put them in the windowsill.
    Thank you - I may have to try that with one or two.

    If you're planning to try to grow one in a vase, be sure that the roots are wet before putting it in a vase. And only the roots in the case, not the whole plant.Otherwise you can not get it into the vase. And be sure that you don't spray them to much. As you can read above.
    Because it's more humid in the vase then when you grow them in a basket.

    I would love a photo of the way they fit in the vases. I have never seen it done that way, but I am very new to the orchid world.

    Here you can see how they fit in the vases. It's really not that difficult at all.
