    Thank you... I do have to do things a little different. Mine get two environments, greenhouse in the winter and outdoors as soon as the temps allow. It keeps me hoppin'...lol.

    They're both beautiful! I love the colors. I've been fighting fungus in my collection also ever since the rainy season started.

    I think we all are this year...even the normally cool states North of us are having problems. I have a new attachment for my hose. There is a "flood" setting that lets water sort of dribble out, instead of a spray or mist. It has made keeping water out of the leaf crowns so much easier. I'm still losing sheaths sometimes (on my cattleya), but some of them are holding up well. The trick is to keep water out of leaf axils and away from buds and sheaths....not easy, but worth the extra effort.

    There are in fact three Ladda Golds - I just looked them up.
    Ascocenda Ladda Gold is Asda Tubtim Velvet ( I expect you know this one - big strong white - all the plants I have seen are so obviously polyploidal - roots as thick as my fingers ! - one of the few Vandaceous things to frequently multi-spike, sometimes three at at a time - but like most white Vandas, a bit difficult to grow well - in my conditions anyway ) x Ascda Bangkhuntien Gold c- which I am sure you know too - one of the most reliable Vandaceous things . I have two plants of this latter one, and intend to buy more when I next see them - they have been meristemmed I guess, and are usually at the European shows.
    But Christeara Ladda Gold is quite a complex hybrid - a quarter Vanda denisoniana, a bit more than that of Vanda sanderiana, and ever decreasing portions of Asctm curvifolium, Aerides flabellata, and theree other vanda species. Goodness knows what it looks like - Orchidwiz doesn't.
    Finally,Rhyncocentrum Ladda Gold is a primary between Rhyncho' coelestis and Asctm minatum - I guess it will be like minatum, but rater larger flowers, and of course, yellow.
    An interesting exercise.

    Nice blooms. I've been fighting fungus here in west palm also. Vandas have loved the rain, but some catts not so much.
