    OK, so far we got Vandas, Catt, Cymbidiums and Doritis pulcherrima as candidates for the Christmas tree. Anybody else got orchid x'mas tree?? If I'm not mistaken got one Doritis...... . Gin, you better come up with a better prize for the winner...LOLOL.

    my mokara will blast if i move it while in spike. it cannot take ful cali sun, except in early morning, so it get bright shade most of the day. but if i move it around the buds blast real quick. last winter i had to bring it in and lost most of a spike and another that was just starting. it has not flowered all summer, and it is just starting a new spike, and i assume i will lose it if i bring it in.
