    Congrats with the new photo, Cathy. Great shot. A very good 'old' ascocenda. I love these older types of aacocendas as they seem to retain the cuteness and vibrant colour of the ascocentrum parents and not looking just like another vanda. I know how the owner must have felt.The present collection is my fourth collection and when I parted with my 3 previous collections I really felt terrible. The third collection was bought over en block by a friend who owned a nursery and I didn't feel as bad as I did the previous two.

    Yew Sung, I bought several really old Ascocendas. I had been looking for a long time for Yip Sum Wahs. I found several old awarded clones.
    I too like the the older Ascos, when they truly were Ascos. I have some now that are bigger then some of my largest Vandas.
    I know that must have hurt giving up your collections. They become like "best" old friends.

    Beautiful Ascda. Cathy.
    Sad about the person who has to down size his collection. I grieve for him.
    When next you hear of a chance to win a Camera please let me know !!! LOL.
    Congrats. Lovely Shot.
