    Alright, so a small update. (I'll be sure to take pictures when I'm home later)

    I've managed to move the Vanada about a foot and a half away from the window (as opposed to right up against it) and will see if I can slowly acclimate it closer and closer, and eventually have it outside to summer it. I hear that it's almost crucial to summer Vanadaceous orchids outside when growing in the home. I'm still using the glass vase method, and am running a humidifier all day in the room with the ceiling fan on full blast. We'll see how it likes this set-up.

    So here's my Vanda. Tag says V. Khao Lak x V. Dr. Anek 'Somri' ...apparently it should be fuschia? (If I ever get it to bloom) Looks pretty smallish to me, so even under the right conditions I'm sure it has a few years before it's blooming size. I have it in a vase with water and rocks in the bottom to provide good humidity (no roots are touching the water of course - it's sitting on top of a small green glass bottle to hold it up). It looks a little bleached along the stem from the first two days I just threw right up against my western window.
