    You are lucky Zainal. You have many lovely species vandas. I can't seem to keep species vandas alive. Perhaps too much sunlight. I never had any luck with them.

    Not really Angel you still can do that maybe the correct technique is not with you, the weather here lately for the past few days very weird too hot my tricolor supposedly already acclimatized with high light got bad sun burnt had to put back in the shade. Angel our senior member Nelson (NTG) from Philippine were successful with vandas species to me the key must get at least 60 to 70% light under the shade, good watering system including fertilizer and insecticide/fungicide. You may try again d not give up thanks.

    Concur with Dr.Zainal. Philippines is a excellent place to grow vanda's and some tweaks to culture should help you make it perfect

    wow love the spots and form, anything with an intoxicating scent I love, had to google this one, I don't often look at an orchid and think this would be good to cross with another, but this one I do, I saw a brunnea cross but that was it, beautiful thanks for sharing
