    The Ascocenda group seem to bloom like crazy. I had one for awhile (until I found out it had to be watered twice a day and of course then it got sold lol) a 'Pine River' Blue. It bloomed twice in about two months. Yours is a lovely sparkly thing. Congrats on a great choice....if you like the watering schedule that is.

    I usually put it outside my bathroom window and just hose it once in the morning and one in the evening, pretty easy. Now that it is in bloom, so I can't leave it outside, it is a little trouble to water it, but it is in the fish tank, I only water it once in the evening. I got a few mounted plants that I have to water them once a day at least, it is a lot of work, but I guess I am too crazy.

    I suppose there is always the "installed watering system" to ease the burden. If I had one of those I'd have a few Asco's myself. They are too pretty those little sparkly flowers. But....my porch is starting to get short on space. Until I get a few pieces sent to my neice....lol
