    Thanks everyone..... Sorry for the delay in replying I have a heavy workload at the moment.
    Can't wait for them to start flowering but i reckon it will be a good two years yet before that happens.

    It's Vanda testacea. I deflasked them last week the night i flew to Holland and that was one of the clumps I didnt manage to detangle. I still have Vanda bensonii flask, Vanda denisoniana flask and Vanda tricolor Flasks that i need to deflask just not had the time yet with working too much at the moment.

    I highly doubt they will flower within 2 years from that size. 4 years at least will be a more realistic estimate, considering conditions in England are not totaly conducive to paph growth year round. But you can prove me wrong.

    I am just going of what the grower told me. I am also keeping this in the warm vivarium so everything is ideally controlled for the plant and when it gets to FS i will transfering it to a cooler Vivarium with a brighter light to enable it to initiate the blooming stage. Your the second person to say it wont flower in that time so i starting to doubt what i was initially told. :-)

    I think I told you before I have a paph delenatii at about your rothschildianum stage, and now a Lynleigh Koopowitz (delenatii x malipoense) that's only slightly larger. I watched mine like a hawk for the first few months - now I have it in the middle of my more mature hybrids to remind me to take care of it - and to remember it's still there until maybe it blooms in 10 years! This really tests my immediate gratification streak - but then again, I don't flask orchids like you do! I look forward to seeing yours sending up its first little spike!
