    Hello Zainal. Actually that's just half as many as the one that's attached to a live tree and in the shade. However, this is a younger plant. I hope it catches up.

    Thanks Bill. Believe me, it's better with the scent on. And the flowers are fully open for only about two hours in the morning, usually from 6AM to 8AM. After that they slowly close and that's about it until the next set of buds open.

    It's a charmer, Patty. The leaves are nice too. Oftentimes, the flowers are concealed by the leaves.

    Thank you, Connie. It's somewhere between a very pale yellow and a creamy white. The petals are waxy. It doesn't have much time to fade because the flowers close pretty quickly.

    max, I just copied it from a friend's set-up. Only a few of my vandas have adapted well to it. They all look healthy but the frequency of flowering has been reduced by so much. They used to be mounted on natural wood.
