    Default Renanthera philippinensis x Ascocenda Yip Sum Wah

    I'm about three months into this new orchid obsession so I recently bought this Renanthera philippinensis x Ascocenda Yip Sum Wah ---- vendor information removed -see faqs on posting----. Love the fuschia color. It came mounted and wrapped in moss and burlap so I could see that the roots were getting a little rotten. Took moss and burlap off and will eventually remount. Right now just hanging out under a tree with a few other vandas. Will see if I can maintain and nurture it so it will bloom again. Anyone know approx. how long in between blooming cycles?

    I bought my vanda in bloom in September. It started to form spike in middle of April and it opened buds by end of May.
    Some people report they bloom for them twice a year.

    Yes. Some vanda hybrids can bloom 2-3 times a year. If the roots are rotten, treat it with physan 20 and cut off the infected portion.
