    If you read my posts, you should know it's too late to try and stop me. I've got the seed planted in the brain now, it's just a matter of time before it sprouts.

    Step away and come back 3 hours layer:
    Well, I found a amazing looking vanda on-line and ordered it. Named:

    Vanda tessellata is a beauty Harvey. I hope you won't mind me telling you that you will have to increase your humidity considerably to succeed with this Vanda or maybe Vase Culture though I have no experience with it myself. AL

    that's a nice one Harvey, great fragrance , I agree with Al on the humidity, I've seen people do amazing with vase culture.
    thanks everyone for your kind comments and views.

    I guess a basket is out for Colorado vanda growing.

    I'll look for a vase. Does anyone know a vendor for such a vase?

    I assume I am seeking a clear cylinder vase that it will fit inside of.

    I actually am going to try and cancel the order for this vanda. Seems like my first resistance to vanda's here was the correct position. I don't want to get any more orchids that will be hard to bloom at this point in my orchid growing experience. Maybe I can try one from the grocery store sometime (less expensive and with cylinder vase). Or after my orchid skills are honed.


    I spoke with the sellers and they are going to substitute a phrag pearcei in place of the vanda (it was a really pretty vanda type too, sadness sets in). They agreed it was a good change to make given my humidity levels.

    that was probably a good idea, Harvey, Neostylis might be a good one to start with, small and fragrant, I've seen people growing these indoors mounded with moss. but a phrag is nice also

    It seems less than smart to buy something that has a high probability of not blooming. Especially as a beginner grower. No sense in frustrating myself. Go with what is possible.

    I did remove any orchid from the wish list that indicates high humidity on it.

    Still sad to not have that cool and pretty flower!

    When I do buy my first vanda, I will get it from the grocery store. They are only $25 and come with the cylinder vase. If it doesn't survive, then it's not a big $$$ hit.

    Four years ago I bought a young rhynchostylis. I think it has grown just about an inch since then. It had 3 leaves then and it still has 3 leaves now. But the roots are healthy. Perhaps it will take a century to mature.

    You have fabulous rhynchostylis, Ed.
