    After moving location several times, to get the right light for the Vanda, finally a bloom. Not sure of the ID. Looks like Peaches and Cream. Anyone got any idea.

    Annette, without a doubt you need to be congratulated. These are very hard to bloom without VERY high light. You've done well. It looks like a lovely cross with lots of JVB (Josephine Van Brero) in background .

    Great job Rosie! Indeed, light is key. After seeing tucker85's collection of Vandas so healthy and blooming so much, I took his advice for Vandas. That is, give it as much light as possible even if it burns a little at first. One of my Ascocendas, which had been sulking since I bought it in May, recently started putting out TONS of new roots just DAYS after moving it into much brighter light! Anyhow, good job getting your Vanda to bloom, Rosie!

    And you know what? The funny thing is, I have neglected this Vanda for 2 months now (I have had my life pretty tied up with Husband's ills), went out to water it last week, and didn't even see the orchid shooting out a bloom. I nearly keeled over with shock. This proves a point with Vandas. Find the right spot and leave it and keep up the watering to keep the roots green.Name:  dancing2.gif
