    Thanks Sriram! It does not show in the picture but there are 2 kiki's that I left in the basket to grow, they have not produced any blooms yet but it will make for a very nice plant one day!

    Nice rich colors. Kudos on the long term good care that lets the plant keep improving.

    I try hard to care for all my orchids but needless to say some I can not give enough care, but at least I try! Always looking for ways to improve.

    That's a great looking specimen - very healthy robust plant and excellent form and colour for an insignis. Great shots !!! For a 6+year old Vanda with all the old bottom leaves still intact shows good culture. Congratulations.

    Thanks Yew-Sung! I guess I should not post any pictures of the ones that I have that are missing half or more of the bottom leaves, there are some nights that I should bring them inside because of the cold but don't more for being lazy then doing what I should do. Next year I will be better prepared for cold weather with heavy ply plastic over my growing areas and if needed a few propane gas lanterns on the floor for heat!
