    Cool Christensonia vietnamica

    I may have already said it a dozen times, but i'll say it again; those tiny vanda types just seem to like it here! Here is something I found so pretty I accidentally bought two of them in the last six months. Only was was previously bloomed and it is plant #2! (you can see the dried spike in pic 3) lol I had to post them together in spite of the smaller plant just starting to spike. I cannot get over how small these spike. I should do a follow up with the shelf they sit on so you can see how large they are in comparison to a standard vanda and an ascocenda. lol Even plant #1 is small by vanda standards.

    The heat has me losing a flower bud here and there...but it's been blistering. Today's heat index is 116F or 46 1/2C!! So I'll be going back outside to mist shortly...again.

    Yes, the humidity isn't as bad, but the heat is still awful. I'm lucky we live close to the coast as it gives us a great breeze usually. Today I went out three times to mist it got so still and hot.

    I live close to the east coast and the breeze helps me too.Last summer my barometer(sp) was always around 60 to 80 for humidity this year 40 to 50.
