    Everytime I see an orchid plant from a grower wherever they are in Vietnam I am shocked to see the lush and strong growth and flowering of the plant(s). They seem to be so happy and doing so well. What is it with the climate over there that makes it so enjoyable for orchid plants to grow? Has any of you over there taken some readings like as in temperature? Light intensity and length? ... at various times of the day? How about rain and humidity including air/wind strengths if any at all?

    I mean here in the Philippines our climate is very tropical and should be very conducive but nowadays the climate here has gone haywire - where either it is too much of rain (and I do mean plenty of it - encouraging rot) or nowadays it is ZERO rain and so much sunlight and HEAT ... which isn't very favorable to the orchid plants.

    Actually, the only Phalaenopsis Orchid growing well in the Western VietNam, in addition to required technical and undercover to avoid the sun and rain, fertilizer just put in pots, do not spend leaf fertilizer, organic fertilizer is best for Phalaenopsis

    Looks like a Phalaenopsis aphrodite to me... I do have this one long time ago but it gone rotten because of long drought.

    Culan you asked me for a photo of my Phal which do not grow straight. I was lazy to click a picture, but it looks very much like the plant in post #9 of this thread.
