    Default First blooming, vandaceous orchid - grown windowsill

    I purchased this vandaceous orchid last year as a near-blooming size plant. The tag identified it as a Ronnyara Snow Flakes (Rhctm. Ladda Gold x Perr. Luke Thai) 'A' x 'B'.

    For the last 2 years I've grown my orchids on windowsills or near windows and this was no exception. Western/southern exposure so the lighting is relatively bright and even direct for some portion of the day. I was lucky enough to find a metal stand with hooks for hanging bird feeders that works just fine for orchids in baskets. I have two of these set up in the house now and can hang up to 8 plants easily. I mist/spray the roots daily.

    And now - a spike with two blooms. The blooms are fragrant - but only at night - approximately 1" in diameter and resemble a V. denisoniana hybrid. The first two photos are from the day after the bloom opened. The next two are two weeks later.
