    Thanks Sriram. Yours looks very much like Vanda and very healthy too. I will post mine tomorrow as comparison.

    Just finish mounting them. Staurochilus fasciatus compare to mine. Looks quite different, hopefully it is the true one.

    They are not perfectly healthy, hopefully they will survive. Blurry pictures because I take only with my phone.

    My Staurochilus fasciatus also looked similar. It took almost 2 years to grow this bigger leaves. It is supposedly a large sized plant (IOSPE says so).

    Your cuttings look strong and have good roots! I'm sure they won't take too Long to establish. Staurochilus fasciatus seems like an interesting plant to have. Another similar species I recommend you to grow is trichoglottis smithii, it blooms frequently and the flowers last for quite a while!

    Roots quite ok but Pthia. insectifera has some issues with the crown, hope it will overcome it.

    Red face Update on Pelatantheria insectifera

    After few months, finally some growth emerged. It looks like a side growths.
    No new roots as for now but at least I know it is thriving. I'm quite pleased with the new growths because the main stem itself has some issues. Hopefully the new growth will grow healthily. The other orchid did not do anything since purchase.
