    But are you not a bit warm for this one Zain ? You may have to water with ice cubes in the watering can to see it flower again.
    He can acclimatize under the new atmosphere and based on my experience this is the only highland Vanda can flower in my garden thanks Geoff.

    Mine have no markings, hopefully I will be able to rebloom it when raining season come.
    I have a few but the marking are very poor I'm glad got the above one, Azizan expose the plant with bright light if you are very lucky you will get very positive result.

    One often reads about particular species growing at a certain range of altitudes etc, and I have always wondered whether they were locally adapted: so if I find species X growing at 2000 meters altitude, and then take it up to 2500 meters - these both being in the reported range, will that moved plant continue to grow and thrive ? If so they really are adaptable.
    Since they grow and thrive in our conditions, and between us we must cover a very large range, I think they are extremely adaptable.
    Except for the ones we find difficult.... They are the ones which are not adaptable !
    I agree with you one of the vanda species that can adapted very well and flowering too. I have few from the jungle and all flowered in respond to bright light during the hot season but one issue in lowland he refusing to produce basal keiki, it's wonderful species Geoff.

    Another interesting thing about the differences between naturally grown plants in the wild and cultivated ones, is that meristem tissue plants seem to mature so much faster than seed raised plants. Because the meristem in the mature plant , from which the tissue was taken, is that much more mature ? But how ? It's just a growing point of unspecialised cells - stem cells. So much we don't know......

    It could grow big as it matures. Where are you located? If you are Malaysian, you should visit Rawang or Taman Gembira, both in Selangor.
