    Default Two of my Vandaceous are blooming!

    I was cleaning my grow area and feeling bored. It seemed nothing was blooming until I started moving around some of my old Vandas which were growing tall and thick on one side of my porch when I discovered that two of them were flowering and another was in spike.

    I hadn't noticed them because the top growth near the very well lighted roof was almost covered with the thick growth of the vandas all clumped together and these were hidden from view unless you really had to look hard to find them.

    They were a delightful surprise for me ....

    Anyway here they are:

    Yes Zain, this is the first time blooming for me and I am so happy.

    I have four other Angraecums but not yet flowering and the plants are already BIG. I will be patient maybe when they decide to surprise me like the sesquipedale. The four not yet blooming are Ang. leonis, Ang. eburneum, Ang. magdaleneae (did I spell this right??) and the hybrid Ang. Leomtard Beauty (spelling not sure again).

    Beautiful flowers! Suksamran Sunlight is a favorite here in south Florida because of the wonderful color and the fact that it's a frequent bloomer. Good growing.
