    O wow Geoff! Incredible Renanthera. I did not know it was possible to do them so well up here. I am a huge fan of them- the way the lower sepals are so prominent and point down, like legs- but have always been scared of vandacious stuff. There is one particular intergeneric though that I would give my eye teeth for- Renanthopsis (RenXPhal) Mildred Jameson, I think she is called. Must check!

    A devil to grow ! Obviously I didn't give my plant what it needed - and my vanda technique has advanced a lot since my plant passed away. I think I tried to grow it like a phally - and I don't do terribly well with them either !

    That is really useful info. Thank you for sharing your experiance with us... I am feeling more confidednt now: R bella sounds the one for my growing conditions.
