    I hung up, Ascda. Roslyn's Best x Aer. Lawrenciae on the wall and sat the bag of Mokara by the potting area so I could find some hangers for the Mokara.

    Nice haul, Connie. You got a good taste.

    The Aerides cross is interesting. It adds the flower counts to the spike, which I think inherited from the Aerides. Then the Ascda will make the spike up-right.

    Do I have some room for it.

    Great additions, Connie!!! Just love that Aerangis. Interesting though that I just bought a similar Ascda Roslyn's Best x Aer lawrenceae last week.

    I think your Aerangis is the most remarkable of these plants - I have never seen one so good. Co-incidentally , after my success with Aerangis jacksonii, I have just bought about a dozen different Aerangis species including this one - mostly said to be flowering size ( but we'll see - although the supplier has a good track record with me )to be delivered in a couple of weeks time after I get home from Italy. If its as good as yours I shall be surprised , and of course delighted.
    Of hre vandaceous ones, I like the Asda/Aerides best - a nice clean shape to those flowers, and a subtle colour too.

    This goes to show what a small world we live in ! It's a fair bet that both plants came from the same flask - a pity that none of them get to UK , but not many [people grow Vandaceous orchids here - I aim to change that.....
