    Red face Tubular Vandas

    My local grocery is at it again. Causing a relapse of a recovering orchaholic.

    I had been really good in 2015 having only purchased a peloric phal to replace the phal that wasn't peloric as it was sold to me as.

    Now I go into the local grocery and boom! Vandas in a cylinder. We have talked about these in the past here on the Orchid Forum.

    So it looks like I am likely to go and buy the blue one (2nd choice I think is the red one) in the photo from the store for $40 with cylinder vase. I only wish they would have put the sticky label in a different, less prominent location on the vase.

    This is the one I bought. The dark spots are water droplets on the vase.

    well i guess your supermarkets are a little bit more adventurous than ours in aus we get phals only but i guess as i work in a supermarket and have a unlimited supply of free phals cause nobody wants them once the flowers have died i can understand the reluctance to venture further into more expensive orchids if you can pick one up for $40 buy it i say that size would be double that here
