    One of the easiest plant to bloom in lowland at least 4 to 6 times a year in established plant with the smell like banana.

    Done. And a lovely vanda. It is really interesting to see it growing way up on a tree like that. How long have you been growing it there? Must make it difficult to smell the banana fragrance since it is outside too. I wish I could grow orchids outside here.

    cheers,
    BD

    Hi Bruce thank you very much I just transferred the plant about 2 months ago due to long aerial roots so I attached at Rambutan tree higher up at least they can get extra light for their needs.It's ok I already get used with the smell it's high time for insects to enjoy it.Zain

    And who needs bananas when we have something as fine as Vanda ustii? Considerably less calories to the orchid also. AL
