    Default Aerides falcatum var. houelletianum

    I have had this plant for many,many years but at one point I almost lost it but was able to save a very small bit.For a number of years it struggled but now seems to have revived its vigor so I hope it will continue.The flowers this year were bigger & healthier so that's a good sign.The flowers are nice & fragrant.

    Wow, that is nice! I love the color. How long did it take to bring it back?

    Cheers,

    A few years because it just sat there doing absolutely nothing.Once that huge root that you see came from the plant--it started to move.Thanks, Bruce -everything is working tip-top now.
