    Huge and colorful! Everything you'd want a Vanda to be!

    Does your greenhouse autowater, Aaron? Or do you have someone to water for you?

    I do have an automatic watering/misting set up, but I have to use a sprayer to feed when I do feed. I have just been so freakin busy working ect. ect. that I haven't even had the chance to get there to feed or anything. I saw a bunch of past blooms all dried up, and didn't even see them in bloom! Some stans, and a couple different catts. Oh well! If they would get done with our house It seems like every time they are suppossed to be done they tell us it's going to be another month

    Your vanda is lovely Aaron, my vanda that is simular is a bit on the sickly side. I am at the get better or die point. Sorry that your house is in the hold pattern, it is such a hassle. Keep your chin up!!!!

    Keep your head up Aaron. It is hard to keep up with a GH when it is in your back yard, much less when you have to make a special trip out to it. Your vanda is beautiful!!

    Cheers,

    Stans waiteth for no man. Or house. Catts at least last more than a couple days!

    Just imagine how happy you'll be when the workers are finally done and out of your hair! It'll be worth the headaches you're having now!

    Thanks for the support everyone Thankfully I have been too busy to really worry about the house. I am actually more upset about not getting to get to the greenhouse all the time then the house not being done. Although, this condo seems to be getting smaller by the day! Plus, all of the snow birds are starting to come back down. I do keep about 50 or so plants here at the condo, and for some reason the people who stay below us always complain about my plants. I have come to the conclusion that they have a severe case of orchid envy!

    Either that or the orchids are simply making too much noise at night.
