    Cool Vanda lamellata var remediosae

    This plant was ripped off the mount a short while back so I took a wire and attached it to my big driftwood. Much to my surprise it promptly threw a spike. This is the first blooming in about a year.

    Lovely. I can't seem to do anything with mine - it is barely surviving.

    Mine was doing that the last year as well. Take heart from mine. I honestly thought it was a goner, and you can still see how badly mine looks. Maybe change what you have it in or mounted on. When I did that I thought mine would die anyways and the way I mounted it, it put it higher up into the sunlight with a few leaves from a larger plant shading it abit. I didn't even do my usual soak with warm water and honey because I thought it would die soon. But suddenly it just perked up it's leaves and threw out a spike! Perhaps this kind likes to take an occasional break. A few of my other orchids have suddenly gone dormant after an amazing blooming or an attack by bugs. I hope yours will suddenly awake and surprise you like mine did.

    I have been planning on doing a spray with warm water and honey to help it and a couple of my other struggling orchids, besides they all perk up after a honey spray. Sometimes I lose a few, but thankfully this one seems to be coming back. It will probably grow new roots in the spring when they go back outside. In the meantime I will have to keep an eye out for bugs since this is one of the only vandas they try to attack on a regular basis. And for those that have never heard me talk about the honey thing, it is a couple tablespoons of honey to a half gallon of water. I change the amount of honey up to 3 tablespoons for the dried out Vanda's I get in the mail along with a few drops of root growing stuff for their arrival soak. I make sure the water is room temperature or a little warmer to get the honey to mix well. And my orchids usually have ants anyways...but before when I lived in the old house and had them in a sun room it did not attract bugs. My current yard is so close to the Florida coast my entire back yard is an ant hill. lol!

    Maybe the cooler weather the last couple years is what had them acting like that. I was wondering what was wrong with mine as well.

    That'll be great mounted on the driftwood. Mine is also in spike -- very excited as this is the second blooming.
