    Thank you, Bruce!
    Just about the time I noticed this 2nd spike forming, I also noticed another tiny little nub. That's been sometime back and the nub hasn't seemed to have grown in the slightest since then. I've been wondering if it will ever start growing again, or just abort. It's also crossed my mind that maybe the Vanda's putting so much energy into the blooms which has caused it to "stall" until the blooms fade away??? Just thoughts. Anyway, maybe...just maybe...I'll have ANOTHER spike full of blooms one of these days. (me=probably not that lucky, though....time will tell).
    Thanks again, Bruce...

    Vicki, It is beautiful.

    Btw, is your Vanda growing upside down? Just curious.

    Thank you, Naoki

    No, it's not growing upside down. It's actually "growing" right-side up, but it and it's basket are hanging practically horizontally. I'm sending another picture of it inside my greenhouse so you may be able to see it better than the one you saw with it hanging from a pole out in our lawn. I didn't initially post this picture because my gh is so cluttered.

    When the Vanda was very young and small, it and it's basket was hanging correctly-upright but over time the wire hanger got out of shape because of the way I handle it every day when I soak the plant in it's bucket. I had decided fairly recently to re-do it so that it would hang upright again, but I haven't exactly figured out how to. I've been thinking about hanging it from a longer and sturdier wire hanger and tying the plant to the hanger with pantyhose (although it and it's basket would still hang very slightly sideways-in my mind, at least-and I haven't convinced myself 100% that tieing the plant wouldn't harm it), but then it bloomed and because of the weight of the blooms, the basket fell over on it's side even more. I'd really like to hang it another way, keeping my growing space in mind, so that it would hang TOTALLY upright, but I can't figure out how. If you or anyone have suggestions, I would very much appreciate you sharing them with me. Back to the wire hanger, the longest one I have found so far is 30". I would like to find a longer one that would accompany the height of the plant, but haven't been able to so far.

    Thank you for asking the question because I have even thought about starting a new thread sometime requesting advice.

    Another thing.....I'm sorry my explanation/question is so wordy. I talk a lot and often get carried away, so I was afraid this was going to happen.
    Thanks again,
    Vicki

    Vicki, this is so beautiful! I love seeing all those green roots almost (!) as much as I enjoy the flowers. Gorgeous plant, no matter which way is up!

    Thank you!

    I think you and I think similarly. I actually never thought either of the 2 Vandas I have would ever bloom, but I've cared for them as best I could because I just love the way the plant and roots look. Everyone enjoys blooms (of course!)...but I get practically as much pleasure watching my orchids grow....love the root growth, new growths....everything. I am thrilled when I see a spike, probably mostly because I feel as if I've done something right.

    Thanks again,
    Vicki

    Is there a new spike coming? Well that is fantastic. Well done. That's why I like Vanda's so much. Hope to see mine bloon soon. Your's is very pretty.

    Thank you!

    The "spike" (I hope) is almost too small to tell, but I can't imagine what else it could be but a spike. It's just a nub, almost the size of a pencil eraser. I haven't had any experience with Vanda's, though.

    I hope your's blooms soon, too...the sooner the better. Be sure to post a picture for us to see!
