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.
Sorry Tracy, to keep up with your thread, try to give your Vanda more sun and humidity, specially the roots,(sun for the leaves, moisture for the roots). What I have noticed is that the more common cause of bud/spike blasting is sudden change or lack of humidity.
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.
