I looked out the kitchen window this morning and knew it was vanda day in Odessa. This is V. Bitz's Heartthrob X V. Simirun. It is just opening today, is a first time bloomer for me and I love it.

Here is a look down Vanda Row. That second one better get crackin' or it's off to the mulch pile. Hilarious!

Wonderful Vanda show Jim! Please tell me you wouldn't really compost one just because it isn't going along with the crowd. I suppose when you can get them that cheap, they're not worth the wait. I'm almost ready to take pictures of the two new roots on my adopted one! Crying

Perhaps my David Sander will be big enough to bloom that nicely one of these days!! I picked up a freebie baby 5 or 6 years ago. Jim, it is very nice on the eyes indeed.
Pretty Vandas! And the Ascda Crownfox has a beautiful shape and pattern!! Lovey dubby

My David Sander is mounted on a 1 X 4 inch ruff ceder board. I hung the board on the side of the barrel that houses the bottle palm. Now the roots go half way around the barrel. I hope I never have to pry it off of there. It really seems happy mounted.

Most of my vandas have 3 to 4 feet of hanging root.

Your David Sander is certainly happy under your growing conditions. Those roots are long!

Wish I could grow Vandas like that! They are such a challenge in my neck of the words.

True Todd, but there's not a phrag within miles of here and paphs only come to visit every three years or so. Every plant has its place. I have to buy my slippers from L.L. Bean.
