    Love the form on that, looks a little like a Mokara I have. Haven't heard of Mikassa before, is this a Vanda type plant? As always, great growing Gin!

    Hi Gin,

    That is a beauty! And three spikes! What do you feed them? 100% Superthrive? And the plant is humongous! Great growing, Gin! How long have you had this plant? I also see other vandas next to it as well!

    Cheers. Hoa.

    I have had it about 5 years , it was unbloomed a recent import when I bought it . They are my favorites , except for being space hogs . They went out under a tree last spring , watered them with the hose and fert . once a week full strength . In the greenhouse they get part tap and part Ro. or rain water . Once a month straight Ro. or rain .

    They are space hogs alright! I have a few of those!
    Woa!!! Interesting schedule (almost perfect!) but apparently they respond extremely well to the regimen. Here in Southern Cal, we have problem with not having enough rain (except last year) so I never collect enough rain water for my orchids. So they have to live with tap water! I got distilled/RO water for them during late spring/summer at least once a month, just to get rid of the accumulated fertilizer salts. And rain water whenever I got enough!

    Beautiful vandas that you have! They look so lush!
    Cheers. Hoa.
