    Smile a vanda mess....

    I posted some photos of the gh in another thread, but here are some up close and personal shots of some of our old vandas. These are the root shots since the flowers are about 12 - 14 feet up in the air. There really isn't any good way to photograph these monsters. I do enjoy the blooms when I notice them.

    Cheers!

    Wow, fourteen feet in the air. You'd get a neck strain looking at them. I think they are such neat plants. About how old are your "old vandas"?

    Yes, but I think I'll stick to taking a cool shower if it is too hot!

    We have owned some for over 15+ years and got them from a grower who had them several years before that. They were large plants when we bought them.
