    Some nice Vanda "types"- Christensonia vietnamica is a nice compact vandaceous species and the various Ascocentrum species are very colorful.

    I really like Vanda lilacina but it's very hard to find in my area. Just a promise of unflasked seedlings in the spring.

    Lou Sneary and also Twinkle are very reliable for me. Pine River is also good - lots of cultivars of several different colours. And if you like a blue one, try Cleisocentron merrillianum

    If you want a really tiny one, how about Schoenorchis fragrans? It’s a wonderful little plant.

    Vanda seedlings require a different technique, ex-flask ( as compared to most other orchids) . If you go down that road, ask me, and I will give you a run-down of what to do.
