    Both are lovely. This is the Rhy gigantea blooming season. The blue Vandachostylis is very attractive.

    Fantastic blooms! Your Vandaceous orchids in the background of your photo look incredibily healthy. Don't tell me....................A low fat, highly nutritiious diet and you make them exercise or jog on those big thick roots every day!? AL

    I have both of them but long way to go....you inspired me Ed. I'm deep with this giagantea although they're slow growing but worth to wait.
