    Red face Baby Vanda in flask

    I don't know if I posted this in the right Thread, but my mother did sent me an e-mail from Thailand. She bought me a baby Vanda in a Flask she wrote. Because i can't imagine what i should think of that, I hope someone knows. I've heard of seedlings in flasks but not a baby orchid in a flask. Is there anyone who knows if that exists. And so is it really one baby Vanda in a flask, or doesn't that exist. Hope someone can tell me.

    Willeke, if I have understood you correctly, which I think, I have, then you can expect something like in this photo

    These are small plants that are sold as souvenirs at most orchid gardens and airport shops in the southeast asia. Anyone who knows I grow orchids, brings me one from their trip, as a result I have accumulated many of these babies. They take anywhere from 4 to 6 years to flower. I have two phals which bloomed for me last year, but many of my ascocendas ans vanda miss joauquims have not yet flowered perhaps some more years. The care is the same you would take for seedlings from a flask.

    I think it would be something like that then. She bought it at an orchid garden somewhere in Chiang mai. She wrote that it was a baby vanda in a bottle, a pink one. So i'm looking forward to seeeing it. I don't have a picture ofcourse yet, so I have to wait a few days.
