    Very nice vanda! We've had a few days of heavy rain in Ft. Lauderdale also. I think the vandas like all that rain but my cattleyas don't handle it well.

    I moved all the catts to the center of my back porch but even then the soggy air just breeds black and brown rot.
    I'm spraying quite often.
    Thanks everyone.

    Nice colour, Cathy. We've had rain for the last 2 weeks here and no sign of a letup.
