    Ooh, Al, that's a nice one. You got one in bloom to show off for your others and make them want to reciprocate, right?

    Shower the new one with so much attention that the others get jealous and decide they want to show off, too!

    Yes Patty I intend to do just that and treat this new Vanda like royalty. It will start each morning with breakfast in bed (or in a basket in this case). I am watering it X2 each day (good long soaks). There will be a special dinner each week, maybe a seafood medley (from a plastic jug), or some highly nutritious La fertilizer du Michigan State University. If this doesn't get the other orchids 'blooming mad' I don't know what will. AL
