    Thanks Zainal. Yes it is very free flowering, It bloomed 2 months ago - you can see the old flower stems in the second picture; a flower spike at every leaf axil. I don't have a flabellata but I have 2 houlletiana and one which I acquired 3 years ago is putting out a spike (about half an inch) and this is the first time it is blooming. Hopefully I'll post a picture when it blooms. The other one which I got a year ago with flowers is not spiking yet. I paid quite a lot for it as this is an outstanding clone. I just hope it will bloom in our country.Also to bloom for the first time for me is Seidenfadenia mitrata with 3 spikes.

    Can't imagine why you don't like ducks, Angel. Think of Chinese roast duck, Peking Duck. Itik Golek (Malay Pot Roast)and my favourite Steamed Duck stuffed with chestnut, gingko nuts and Shitake musrooms and our family's own Hakka Braised duck in salted soya bean sauce .Where would Salted and Century eggs be without ducks ! Have you tried Duck egg omelette ? In Malaysia especially in Penang Char Koey Teow ( fried flat rice noodles) is rightly famous but the original version has duck egg instead of chicken egg as at present. Oldies like me still bring along our own duck eggs(when available) to the stalls that fry the noodles. Give me duck over chicken any day .......except the duck shit.

    Thanks for looking in Angel. Yes it's fragrant from the Aerides.

    Catttan, I try to crank my humidity over 75 if I can as long as the temperature is right and the air circulation matches it.... would you agree? Or is that approaching a dangerous level?

    I agree - the majority of vandaceous types prefer high humidity. I grow all my orchids outdoors 24/7 under 50-70% shade cloth. In our country the humidity is almost always 100% except for a couple of months when it may go below 70% but then I mist 2-3 times a day to raise the humidity. Outdoors, air circulation is not a problem but fungus infection is and so regular application of fungicide is necessary.

    @cattan: "... The nearest we have to this colour that I can compare it with, is overboiled/overcooked green vegetables."
