As with the tricoglottis - great shots - which helps when one can't post the fragrance, too. I wonder - for the last 2 months I have had a small, fairly young (I think it has spiked once in its history, although not with me) v. lilacina. Are you familiar with it? Of course, I brilliantly decided on a species vanda instead of a a hybrid for my first challenge. I don't know anyone in Atlanta who grows species vandas, so I'm not sure what to expect. It seems happy, but no spikes yet - patience..... I know. Thanks.
Hi Maura, Here I attached to you Vanda lilacina I already got this plant more than a year this species supposedly free flowering, when I got this plant I saw many old spikes but in my hand still no luck maybe require little bit cool (mine night temp 24 degree C). this is very pretty species. I wish it will reward you soon or later good luck.
Very nice blooms.
Enjoyed seeing something new Vanda wise. AL

Suresh the individual flower is about 4 cm in diameter and long lasting blooms.Thanks.
To Zain - re the vanda lilacina photo.
Thank you so much! If nothing else it confirms that mine is looking as it should, and no worries about spiking yet - I, too, have been told it is very free-flowering. Mine is in a small basket with a small amount of spaghnum and gets soaked in rain water once or twice a week and misted once or twice a day. Of course that was the routine during the warmest days, before I left for my October vacation in the northeast. Since then, it's been vacationing in a local greenhouse "spa" - courtesy of a kind orchid friend. I wonder whether it will ever want to come home with me! This is what it looked like soon after I got it and before I left (not a great picture - and what a disorganized-looking plant!):
Thanks for your input! I value it tremendously. By the way, the vanda was outside all summer and early fall, so its overnight temps had been no lower than about 65 degrees F. It'll be near a south facing window, so I'm hoping it will cool at night just by being close to the window. I'll have to research what temps I get in that area of my home.
Wow that is a good specimen just a matter of time to come out spike, your plant look very healthy to me good growing you can spay some organic fert. from animal dung to make it the plant more awesome.
