    Default a big and a small vanda...

    I was out to the GH this afternoon to put my new Epi, I won at my orchid society auction today, into its new home. I looked up because I could smell a wonderful cattleya and found this vanda in bloom.

    They really are opposites, aren't they! But both lovely! I love the draping spray on the little guy!

    Diogo, you have a good eye! That was a typo on my part. INSTEAD of 'Astus' it should read 'Asvts.' (My dyslexia kicking in.) Asvts. = Ascovandoritis. Sorry about the error! I am glad you caught it and hope you didn't look too long for the answer. I saw your post and I couldn't believe I did that!

    Cheers!
