    Default Euanthe sanderiana

    Blooming a couple of months earlier this year. I've had the worst issue with thrips this past couple of weeks. I lost a flower on this plant and a couple of spikes on others.

    Love the two tone colors on this one, what a beautiful bloom. Sorry to hear about the thrips problem so far I have managed to control mine but I do not have as many plants as you do.

    Beny, the thrip problem is mine own doing. I haven't been home much to keep up with spraying them weekly. This is a tough time as the humidity levels drop this time of the year. While the humidity doesn't keep them away it does help a little. When the air is drier they come out in full force.

    ...and thanks

    Just simply stunning.

    Since they tend to get LARGE, I am reluctant to get them.

    I was of the opinion that they were slow growing also, as was a plant I had years ago. The flower was something only its mother would love unfortunately, close to a natural species plant I think. I bought a smallish seedling last year of top Thai nursery line bred clones, 'T Orchids x Dr Bunphot', it grows as well as if not better than some of my old faithfuls.

    I have two of these and they are both slow going compared to my other species here in Florida. The one I posted is many years old and still maybe about 25 to 30 inches tall. The roots are very thick some the size of my index finger. I will say they both have beautiful straps compared to other vanda types in my opinion.
