    These Vanda tricolor's are a favorite of mine Zain. As Roy pointed out the colors on these blooms are especially pleasing. Love that rather demure yellow background on the petals. AL

    Hi Gage most of the plants I grow them in the basket, for your information the temperature here in Malaysia at night usually 24 degree Celsius hardly drop less than this however daytime between 32 to 37 degree Celsius.
    Since the tricolor is very huge plant especially from Irian Jaya I have to put them in a big clay pot as on the first photo.
    Some of them I attached to the tree bark and the last 2 photos in the black basket see how the plants here are very heavy each plant almost nearly more than a kilo.

    Your eyes like an eagle very sharp just to provide some moisture in between watering.

    Just put finger cross remember some of them even small plant already through away the spike, plz give enough light at least more than 60 %,those from Irian the plant need at least more than afoot begin to produce a spike however those from Java Island small plant can see their flower waving left and right.
