    You have so many different vanda species flowering at the same time. All of them are beautiful and rare. I wonder if you have tried to cross pollinate or self pollinate them?

    I did before some of them already in the protocom stage but others already deflasked. The photo below is just deflasked about 4 days ago crossing between V. leucostele and V. insignis.

    Cool! Looking forward to see the development and flower of the cross. How many days you wait usually after the flower opens before pollinating? I think timing is very important for pollination, but I just cannot get it right.

    Usually after 3 days that is the best time usually the development of embryo very fast and make sure avoid fertilizer during this period for about 48 hours. If every thing going very smooth another 3 to 4 years may be we can see the outcome.
