    Well, I put my new vanda in a vase so we'll see how it handles. If it doesn't like it, I'll just have to use Chinese leaf-pulling torture on it. One leaf at a time until it realizes it has to grow.

    Wow! you water them 3-4 times a day, that too staying in Florida! I think I might get arrested for vanda torture as I spray them only 1 time a day that too in the dry weather of Bangalore Now I know why your vandas are so happy with you
