    Beautiful collection! Amazing vanda roots. My phals have loved outside. What is your temp range during the summer in LA? We have had 90 F and 60 F temps. Several have thrown spikes and I keep moving more outside. I think I have 6 phals in spike right now.

    My collection is dwarfed!

    The summer here is really hot,over 90 F and sometime can reach100 but a little wind .it just rained last week so my plants got shower and I collected rain water for them

    For all Phals ,I've just reported them after finished bloom.so no flowers this time.
