Hard to come by in the accessory trade in UK too , I guess they cost too much to manufacture, and they do rot if they don't get well dried out by sunshine - and perhaps if they are always dry so that they don't rot, they are not much use for growing .
    I love these small vandaceous flowers ; so much more interesting than the big straight Vandas. In fact I am getting rid of most of my large flowered ones, one way or another; but since I have been "on them" for more than 20 years that is not surprising. I don't think it is fickle, to lose a bit of interest in that length of time ? But the orchid family is so large that there is always something else clamouring to fill my benches.
    A local nursery has one of our local high schools' wood shop class making them. They sell them to the local orchid nurseries to help defray the cost of the wood for shop class. I thought it was a very bright idea to have the local wood shop classes making something they could actually sell like that. And I started with the big vanda as well. The big ones are nice, but the smaller ones clump and they are just way easier to make room for than a 7 foot tall monster vanda.

    Very nice intense color, and I love the hibiscus flower it gives a good comparison to the size of the orchid

    Gosh, I love the second photo. The colors of the orchid pop against the hibiscus.

    cheers,

    Beautiful. Really like the blue contrast of the lip.
