    Always a favourite.
    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.

    Vanda coerulea can grow in warm condition (not hot) and Zain has a cool room now.
    Mine have no markings, hopefully I will be able to rebloom it when raining season come.

    [QUOTE=Azizan;457430]Vanda coerulea can grow in warm condition (not hot) e.[/
    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 !

    Agreed. I also always have a thought that those that grown from flask are more adaptable than those collected from the natural habitat.
