    Default Vandas announcement and trip to India question!

    Ok, I have officially taken a no root Vanda to many roots and now a spike! Yay my first Vanda spike!

    I am headed to India next week, flying into Delhi but staying in Gurgaon. Any places to go orchid seeing during the day since I will be working overnight!

    No places near Gurgaon for orchids (some plants nurseries you can find) . If you willing to make trip to North East part of India(Darjeeling and Kalimpong )you can find plenty of plants( I can say its Heaven of orchids).

    I didn't see many orchids in Delhi, but if you get to travel south you will see some amazing orchids. The best place of all the places I visited in India for orchids was in Kerala. Orchids were growing in all the huge old trees everywhere. That said, it is a long way from Delhi but the ocean is stunning.

    Now if only you could visit Amey's place - I bet you could see some amazing orchids. I don't know how far Pune, India is from Delhi, but that would be a cool trip too.

    cheers,
    BD

    I wish I could visit Amey's place, I have been to Pune and it is about a 3 hour drive to Pune from Delhi. I am sure I will be back to southern India in the future, I may be headed to Bangalore next year.

    Miller, Pune is 1442 kms from Delhi, I am not sure which car you were driving LOL. You are most welcome to my place if you would like to see my orchids. It is 1.5 hours by flight. I am also not aware of any orchid places close to Delhi, it has a very hot and dry climate not conducive for orchids, winters are very cold. There is a world famous cactus garden in Delhi. Beware, Delhi and Gurgaon are full of pick-pockets.

    That sounds about right, Mumbai is the capital of my state Maharashtra, about 200 kms away, so it could be the city you drove from.

    Miller,

    If you planning to visit Amey's place then you can do some short trip around the western ghats ..
