    I am a fan of Ctna. Why not? (shush all you auction folks!!!) Very pretty blooms, despite iffy foliage...biased towards those strapped leaf plants! sigh....

    The vanda just got done blooming..it is huge,about a 2 ft.fan !!! I actually have 3 of the orni's..he had his mounted on a round stick and it had completly covered it like a bush. Mine are babies compared to his but blooming size. They make good converstion pieces,because of their size.

    I tried to stay with small stuff buttttttttttttttttttt he kept saying try it, if you don't want it trade it. Most of the catts are in sheath and they are HUGE !!! The sheaths are 5-6 in. long !! Hubby wanted those for the fragrance.

    Heather, I did ask for the 'Why Not'...it is a favorite of mine and his blooms all the time !!

    Traci, I have to look some of these up myself....especially the species...I don't know their requirements......

    I thought I was downsizing! I really need to, come fall,it's gonna be a tight fit in the grow room!
