    Default Papilionanthe teres (Vanda teres), my oldest, from Brazil

    This orchid is the oldest I have is with me for over 13 years, at first was very small, now turned into a clump of more than 3 m, where flowers and I am enjoying talking, you are certainly the most precious I have .

    An orchid that likes plenty of sunshine, plenty of water, does not require much care, I would say that she saw herself, a true gift.

    Congrats ! your V. teres is truly beautiful. I bought one ata Show in Miami 2 years ago , it is still alive but not at all robust. I think I will try to move it to another location.
    I have large clumps of V. Amy and V. tricuspidata. My Pictures of them are posted here on the Forum.

    I was not saying to move your post. I was just directing you to see my Pictures. Your post should really be in the Category "Vanda, Catts. & Dendrobium in bloom" I do not know how to change it, If Bruce thinks it needs to be moved he will do it and inform you

    Very well grown V teres, In Malaysia I find that V teres is not as robust as its progenies and other Papilionanthes.
