    Default Can't bear to part with this hybrid.

    One of my first plants, it fell off the bench, with more than half of its psbs smashed.

    It has slowly regained form and foliage, and this is the second blooming after the carnage. I know I don't have a lot of real estate for more plants, but somehow I can't part with it.

    Besides, the fragrance is a bit different from my usual vanda fragrance.

    Nice plant & blooms.
    Know what you mean when you say you cannot part with it.The large Onc Sharry baby i divided last year has been in flower or spike since.It seems to make new PB,s(they all spike) about every 4 months.They just get so darned big so quick.

    Very nice blooms, I know some get big quickly Dividing can be such a hard thing to do but you don't loose the plant you gain another.
