    Zainal, my plants are just half so big, but I hope they can bloom as well. Is now the flowering time for this Vanda?

    I think high time to make another amendment as the smell is so sweet rather than bad smell probably the taxonomist will look into this matter, thanks Paul.

    Some of the plants I saw few spikes but they are not progress maybe in the wild is blooming season as Sumatera is very close to Malaysia.
