    Default Vanda rothschildiana 'Blue Ribbon' FCC/AOS

    This huge vanda is putting out spikes all over. Here are some shots of the longest three and some of the blooms that are opening. This monster vanda is now a permanent fixture in our greenhouse. It has been growing here in the same place for 16+ years now. Enjoy...

    Now that's a doozie!! I can see why that's a permanent fixture where it is. I wouldn't want to be carrying that all over the place, either! Beautiful, Bruce!

    A bit longer than that. I have been growing orchids here in Arkansas for 16 years this month (yesterday, Aug 15.) . I started growing orchids when I still lived in Virginia in the early 90's. We brought this one here when we moved along with several others and some cattleyas.

    Wow. That's a beauty. Amazing. Must not think of the idea that my Vanda's will become that huge. Than I need to move.
