    Default Vanda Phal. finally bloomed again!

    Hi all, I went on vacation for a couple of weeks and came home to this! I call it my Vanda Phal. because the thing just never loses leaves...it keeps growing up and up, and has about 10 or 11 leaves right now. I've posted this particular plant for the third year in a row now, and it just gets better! This is the first double spike I've gotten out of it, and the first time it has branched. It's incredibly reliable. The flowers are about 3-4 inches across, and the pictures really don't do justice as to just how massive this Phal. is. The spikes alone verge on being about 2.5 feet tall.

    Good to have you back Kelly, and what a beautiful phal! The sheen is amazing on the leaves.

    I like the dark veins contrasted on the yellow petals, beautiful.

    Hi, this phal is just gorgeous! Wish mine were so enthusiastic! How often do you feed and water it? You must polish its leaves too!! Just magnificent!
