    In America (cold North Dakota), I tried growing a few vanda plants with absolutely no success. They died as soon as I looked at them. No wonder--no humidity. Here in Northern Thailand, the conditions are so perfect for vandas. Just put them in a cheap plastic open orchid pot without any medium and do nothing except watch them grow. It is so humid here that water just drips off the plants.

    So, this is my very first vanda success story. Not only is the plant so healthy, IT IS A BLOOMING VANDA--a first for me! IMG_20220929_170839.jpg IMG_20220929_170418.jpg IMG_20220929_170427.jpg IMG_20220929_170851.jpg IMG_20220930_064313.jpg IMG_20220930_064330.jpg IMG_20220930_064419.jpg

    I am adding some newer pictures of this
    Vandachostylis Crownfox Red Gem.
    It is difficult to get good photos underneath the sun shield. The available light plays tricks on me. Sometimes it looks like a dark deep red and other times like a lighter orangy-red.
