And Ascda Fuchs Joy continues to be a pleaser. The yellow Vanda peeking through is still the Ascda. Anant Gold x V. Rasri Gold which started to bloom outside in Summer.

Ursula, your Vandas are amazing!
How long did it take for them to reach that size, may I ask?
Breathtaking!

Fred,
Do you think Blc. Lake Murray 'Mendenhall' could be your mystery? Saw it in a shop without my camera this weekend. http://www.hurleyorchids.com/cattleyas2/lakemurraymendenhall...

Janice, a few of my Vandas grow in my care since the ca. mid nineties, but I picked up a few somewhere 5, 6 years ago.
This is the one which started it all, Vanda David Gardner!! It was a beautiful gift ca 15 years ago and I grew it in the sunroom, carrying it every day into the bathroom to water. When it didn't fit through the door any longer, ( and the Orchid collection was starting to bust out of its seams) we looked seriously into getting a greenhouse.
Here is my gorgeous Vanda David Gardner in its brand new home in October 2001. In the meanwhile I have split the plant, one keiki didn't survive it, but I do have now 2 healthy David Gardner plants, both flower regularly.

Looking at the nice shape of the fairly flat flowers, I think this plant primed me to always look for pleasingly shaped and patterned vandaceous blooms. The close up shot is from 2007.

What a beautiful phrag, Kathy. I'm eating my heart out.

Ursula, V. David Gardner just went on my wish list. It looks like I will meet Laurel and Steve in Apopka on the 9th of November as they make another trip to Miami. Perhaps I can find it there. Such fun, can't wait!

Kathy, beautiful Phrag and the Neostylis is so cute! Lovey dubby Yes, we are definitely looking forwards to your visit!!

Janice, it was in a 16 inch hexagon if I remember correctly.

Jim, perhaps contacting RF Orchids might be a good thing?

Thanks Carol! BTW, Gerberara 'Snow Ballet' looks quite happy-didn't skip a beat after being chopped up and shipped across country. How novel to have a hardy one!!!

Glad to hear it! The piece I have mounted on the Lemon tree has even decided to put out a spike. Big Grin
