    This one is always a delight and an easy bloomer too, just it will flower once a year and not frequently, or my plant is still small

    My plant is not big either and it has bloomed 3 times this year. I think the average for this vanda is 3 -4 times a year.

    My goodness, we always see such quality from you. You remind me of the first time I went to the Chelsea Flower Show, when I was still in school, and saw a big blue Vanda for the first time. Can you imagine- I thought then that Vanda blooms were about an inch across, so I nearly fainted at how huge and how b-l-u-e they were!

    Thanks Igor! One of the greatest disappointments of my life is that in the 3 years 1957 -1959 I was in England as a student I couldn't make it to the Chelsea Flower Show. But then Wolverhampton is not too close to London. However the disappointment was compensated a hundredfold when on student concession passes, my course mates and I were given the opportunity to attend some of the greatest Shakespearean plays staged at the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre in Stratford on Avon during the Shakespeare Festival in 1959. Imagine seeing some of the greatest (and the greatest of all time, Laurence Olivier,) Shakespearean actors of the time on stage - Laurence Olivier in Coriolanus; Michael Redgrave as Hamlet; Charles Laughton as King Lear; Paul Robeson of 'Old Man River' fame as Othello and Sam Wannamaker as Iago in the same play; Mary Ure in 'A Midsummer's Night Dream' with Charles Laughton as Bottom (stole the show); Vanessa Redgrave in various roles in the plays; Albert Finney also in Othello. It has been more than 50 years but these memories are as fresh as ever.

    WARNING - Thread temporarily hijacked!!!!

    Oh, Yew, please adopt me!!!! I was a specialist in Shakespeare while getting my BA in English at Brown University and at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland. I've only seen a few major live productions - all in the States, but I did see Siobhan McKenna at the Abbey Theater in Dublin a few times. I have been thrilled to see Kenneth Branagh's efforts to bring Shakespeare to film. His Henry V is unsurpassed, except, perhaps, by Olivier's Hamlet film role. My personal passion is for King Lear, which I have studied ad nauseam but never seen produced. "Oh, fool, I fear I shall go mad!" Have you ever seen Tom Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead? I loved the live production, but there is also a film, which I don't think does the play justice. My 18 year-old son is FINALLY reading some worthwhile literature in his English class - beginning with Hamlet this week, but reverting to the loathsome Hemingway and Tennessee Williams just afterward. No Shakespearean sonnets, alas. "Let me not to the marriage of true minds admit impediment..." - reminds me of my parents, as well as you and your wife.

    What is going on? Master Yew, I am so... flabberghasted! I hardly know where to begin. Well first of all Charles Laughton! Are you serious! He was gone before my second birthday, so for me he has always been a mythical figure of unapproachable glamour... grandeur as well as delicacy... the odour of sanctity! And you actually saw him on stage- I simply cannot take it in!!! Wow. All those people you saw: what a golden age!

    Listen to this: There was a time when education was free, and while I was studying at Newcastle my student card took me for half-price to the Theatre Royal as often as I could go: drama, ballet, all the best productions came on tour (the fabulous multi-racial London Dance Theatre were at their zenith, before they were disbanded)... but in my final year I saw a production of King Lear, not on stage but a television production... not the Royal Shakespeare Company but a one-off company where everyone was cast against type... not the BBC but a commercial broadcasting company in Manchester! Leo Mckern was Gloucester and I shall never forget his eyes being ripped out; Olivier ("Larry"), shortly before his own death, was Lear. It was almost impossible to watch: for ONCE in his life, Larry threw away his towering self-regard and let all dignity fall apart atom by painful atom. His greatest performance; every line is now his... I have been hoping to see a different Lear who is as just convincing, but no- there is, for me, only one Lear: Sir Larry. The old rascal has stolen the role forever. And I was never a big fan!

    And Maura, my dear Maura- thank you for allowing me to loathe Hemingway and Williams without feeling there must be something wrong with me! America has many disregarded heroes.
