    Thank you, Mayje. This time of year, right after our "summer" is usually when I get the most blooms from the vandas and dendrobiums.

    You are welcome, Natalie. This is perhaps one advantage of growing a certain type of orchid in its natural environment. One gets great results without too much effort.

    Thanks, Yew. That Pteroceras...I almost always miss it because most of the flowers are concealed by the leaves of the surrounding plants. The situation often is that I go around taking pictures of the other plants, or trimming something, and then as I reach for the lower branches that need to be trimmed, that's only when I notice that the Pteroceras is in bloom. Lucky this time I saw it and at the exact time when the flowers are fully open.

    By the way Yew, am I right, is that red one in the first post an ascocenda or something else? After all, as I've written before, I've killed all of my ascocendas. They just die on me for no apparent reason.

    Does, look like an Ascocenda, but not to worry about whether it is an Ascocenda as under the new taxonomic changes all Ascocendas are now Vanda ( Ascocentrum as a Genus does not exist any more and has been moved to Vanda ).

    Exactly my point!
    I grow only (or at least 90%) heat tolerant orchids. Since I have no greenhouse with a cooling system, they have to survive in Florida hot summer. I tried a few times Draculas and Masdevallias but they were doing well only in winter.

    Yes Yew, I've read from other threads here that ascocendas are now vandas. Perhaps the experts are trying to simplify things. Maybe they are becoming confused themselves.

    But I like ASCOCENDA and the way it sounds Yew. Heaven forbid, if you turn all the ascocendas into vandas, given my track record, I might kill all of my orchids.

    Good for you then, as the heat loving ones, especially the vandaceous group, are some of the most colorful and showiest flowers in the orchid world.

    Ok Ed, that's two of the Vanda TMA (the one you particularly like), and two each for the rest of them. I'd even put in an extra Pteroceras (last photo) since I have lots of those.

    All blooming sizes? This would cost you more for freight charges.
