    Default Aerides houlletiana

    This orchid was a game changer for me. I live in the north of the US without a greenhouse so why would I be able to make it grow and bloom. That was three years ago and it has bloomed every summer for me. Because of that I started to grow Vandas!

    Fabulous spike! Have to try one of these again. I got a baby 5-6 years ago and treated like a Cattleya. You do learn a lot on this forum!

    Very beautiful Arne! You have that special touch, she is flourishing! Once I get all situated with the full understanding of my Catts, I may add a Vanda. I so enjoy the way they grow from everyone's photos.

    'I have that special touch' - wow. I just thought I was going orchid crazy. In any case, that's the nicest comment I've ever received. Thanks Marlene.

    Don't let it go to your head Arne, we all loose that certain touch every once in awhile!
