    The last photo is this plant featured. The 'bicentennial' is YSW and really old, as well. I know I have a YSW 'Flame' that looks just as bad, too.

    Do you know how to air layer a plant? I think that's the best option.

    I'm probably not going to do anything to these plants but leave them alone. I'm not going to chance losing them. They are too old and hard to come by. I would never find them again.

    Why do they look like that???? in my country when a vandaceous type looks like that its usually has a cold growing vanda in its ancestry e.g V.coerulea..i doubt that is thee case here...or do they age like humans do??

    Vandas that are subjected to cold will drop leaves. That is not the case with these plants. They are just very old.

    beautiful flowers ,2 of my favorite things together, red and spots, I think the Yip Sum Wah x Mimi Palmer 'Teo Boon Hian' cross should be great. Would using keikei stimulant along the bare part induce new plants?

    I've used keiki paste before and had some success. I might try it on this plant's sister and see what happens.

    Cathy, do you use seaweed extract on your orchids? I would wait for spring and then use something like Maxicrop Liquid Seaweed on it to encourage new root growth higher up on the plant so you can trim off the old lower stem. It's worth a try.

    I do use kelp extract once a week and swear by it. This is about the time of year that I back off to about once a month. I agree Jeff...great stuff.
