    Thanks Amey And yes...a pain in the rear!

    Tom, I was told they would bloom at a small size, too. Mine didn't. I think they just need vast amounts of light, water and food. I would love to find more species.

    Geoff, I would be happy if I could count on three blooms. I just can't seen to get them to flower like the vandas. I can't wait to see the big bloom show on yours. And for Neofinetias, I can't bloom them.

    Al, Here's hoping you have spikes before you know it This is a good time of year for the big dinner plate vandas. I have several tessellata color forms but only a few in spike. Thanks Al

    My goodness, Cathy - NOW I see how you manage to collect all these vandaceous types - a retail greenhouse couldn't even begin to compete with you. It must take forever to mist them all - do you do it by hand, or do you have a system?

    Yes, it takes forever, Maura. I'm going to put in misting fans but will continue to hand water. I can see each plant that way.

    That is a lot of Vandas...
    Do you have V. Pachara Delight "Pachara" AM/AOS? If you know the source, send me a PM. Thanks. Years ago, I found one at a nursery(can't remember the name) near the AOS head-quarter, unforunately I found out it got virus later on...
