    Default Vanda (Velthius x Pink River)

    A semi-terete. Blooms are right at 10cm natural spread. Faithful fall bloomer, gets full sun most of the day all summer. Not the best form, not as floriferous as it could be, but I like it well enough anyhow.

    Do you have it outside all summer in the full sun? Or do you mean you have it in a sunny window? Sure wish I could grow vandas, but much too dry here. Does yours have the luxurious mane of roots? I think that is their coolest feature.

    I would never attempt to grow a Vanda in the desert. So keep those photos coming and I will keep on dreaming.

    Ohmygod!

    Nice if it flowers for you regularly. The colour is like a woman's neglige though... not my taste...

    *waitin' for a cleisostoma to open its blooms*
