    Since you started off by telling us that your plant was prone to scale attack (which can be seen), do you have any idea or information as to why certain Vandas are more susceptable to scale than others. I am aware of how foolish this sounds, but I have seen it in my own collection where one particular plant keeps repeating scale and the others remain untouched.
    Hi Angela,
    i was wondering myself, this plant was the only 1 attacked by scales this summer. Now all the "little bastards" should be dead and what is visible now are the dried up remains of it.

    Asctm. garayi has those typical stout "V-shaped" leaves and see the the midlobe on my pix formed like a "spoon" in a 90 degree angle of the spur.
    Now as for the flowering season, i wouldn't give too much about it, since mine also bloomed in autumn.
    It's confusing. The next time I visit my friend when his 'miniatum' are in bloom I'll be on the lookout for all the characteristics you mentioned .... and hopefully take some closeups of the individual flowers. BTW the area where these plants were collected covers only a few square miles and incidentally is also the place where Habenaria carnea is found. This is a karst area with limestone hills and caves.

    Yes, it is confusing, especially when you google around and after a while you just don't know any more...
    Pls take pix next time, i would love to see comparison shots of all three species mentioned. To be honest, I'm not super convinced either, but i put a lot of trust in Cootes and Christenson's paper, however, there is always room for intermediate ones in my opinion.
