    Talking My first Vasco

    I already have Vanda's and Asco's. but I didn't have a Vasco yet.
    I did buy it on ---- vendor information removed - see faqs on posting ----- . It's the Vasco Veeraphol. It's still a seedling. I like the colorfull combination of the flowers. Not that it will flower any time soon I think, but the color is nice. The parents are Rhy Gigantea x Asco. Banghunthian gold. I really like it. I just have it for a few days now, so it's not showing any signs of growht yet ofcourse. That will take a while.

    Thats the attitude, once you grow it well, flowers will follow for sure. My experience with this size plants is that it will take 2 years for them to grow and flower in India whereas 3-4 years for them to flower in Europe, owing to the dark and cool winters.

    Thanks a lot. It will be nice if it takes 2 years, but 3-4 years is also not bad. Maybe it will help when it gets some additional light in the winter.
