    Thank You for the name update! I had looked and could not find the name. I really need to get my orchidwiz program one of these days.

Although seeing that I haven't actually flowered any of my Vandaceous orchids yet, this could just be a bit of biased guessing on my part...
    I hope you are right about the free flowering. It has one spike per growth right now... I hope I can get the care right. I'm not sure what to do exactly since one likes shade and one likes sun. lol Someone suggested putting it in a tree fern pot. What does everyone have theirs growing in?

    Actually, from what I understand, Doritis generally like more sun and require a bit more of it to flower than straight Phals... (although now that they've been lumped together it just makes things more complicated...)... I have a Vandaenopsis plant that is happily growing in bark in a glazed pot. It's not quite blooming size yet, but it's growing like a weed, and the roots are quite happy in the bark. It's a straight Vanda/Phal primary cross I believe...I have to double check on that... but the name of it is Vandaenopsis "Newberry Whimsy." There wasn't a lot of culture info on it online besides, "Grow it like a Phal but with more sun." Erm, okay.

    I think these Doritis/Phal/Vandaceous crosses are actually pretty tolerant of a variety of conditions. I've seen pics of people growing their Doritis/Ascocenda crosses happily in plastic nursery pots with bark. You'll have to experiment and see what works best for you! Make sure to report back!

    Nice delicate colouring on this cross. The influence of the Doritis parent is very dominant here ; the orange red of Ascda Pralor seems to have disappeared completely from this cross.
