Rhynchodenia Magic Wand,
Don't know how they manage to survive all the thunderstorm, which was pelting away at the petite flower buds, but they did and they bloomed.

Vanda Somsri Gold
Transplanted this in a slightly different location, and it is flowering again.

Vasco Janice Allison
Got this in SGF2014 in Aug, and it is already putting out new roots, new leaves, 1 new keiki and 2 new flowering buds! So glad that I bought this.
Will post more picture when the flowers are blooming.

You have such good orchid fingers, you should try growing some of these vandas in spaces that are too sunny for your phals. I am sure they will perform very well for you.

Vas I Janice Allison had a sweet scent right?
I smelled the plant at SGF, maybe you bought the same plant :hysterical:/>
Coincidences do happen.

By the way, what fertiliser and growing conditions do you provide so that they grow so well.

Didn't really smell the Janice Allison, so I don't really know what it smell like. But will do that when it blooms.

I usually put all my vandas in the sunniest position, and water their roots every morning till they turn green.
When I remember to fertilise the roots, it's with gaviota 63. But I retain moisture on their roots using spanish moss to hang on their roots.

Thanks, sthh ... I do have a few vandas, but I no longer have space for more, they can be very big. Once I get more involved, I can't stop looking for more, so better not until I have more space.

Good idea on the Spanish moss.

Vasco Janice Allison, got this in SGF2014 in Aug. It's already flowering on both new flowering spikes.

Rhy. coelestis, got this in SGF2014 in Aug also. Didn't expect it to flower, but it did, and the flower spike grew very fast, and is now flowering.

Vanda Tan Hoon Siang
It decided to finally bloom on boxing day 2014. Hopefully, the flowers will last till CNY.

Rhynchodenia Magic Wand
After it's last flowers faded from the Nov bloom, it decided to put up another spike in Dec.
Very rewarding plant to have.

Rhy. coelestis
Don't know who or what pollinated this plant, but a pod is formed. I suspect the ants did it.

Vanda Tan Hoon Siang in full bloom, hope it will last till CNY.

Rhynchodenia Magic Wand, after it's last bloom in Nov, it is putting up yet another flowering spike. Rewarding little plant. Must get another plant at the next SGF.

Ascocenda Yanisa Gold, late in putting up a flowering spike compared to the others, but better than never.

Vasco Janice Allison, don't know how it got pollinated, but it made a pod.
Going to try some home flasking.

My new acquisition:
Vanda JVB x Ascocentrum miniatum
It has 3 flowering spikes, which splits into 5 spikes. How can one not buy a vanda that can flower so much. I think it will be in full bloom during CNY.

Vanda Tan Chay Yan
Comes with 2 flowering spikes. I think it will be in full bloom during CNY.

Cool :-)

One vanda's blooms equals several novelty phal blooms :flowers:/>

Just went to a nursery and saw many beautiful noid phals with numerous huge multiple flowers on really long spikes, tempting but just don't have the space anymore for them. Signs of CNY coming, but I don't remember seeing vandas in normal nurseries like FEF or even the flower shops.

Normal nurseries like FEF don't really carry named vandas, so it is better to go to Toh's, Song or WL. But Toh definitely has a huge selection of healthy named vandas at affordable prices.

So pretty! Can you share your environment? How often do you water them?

My vandas are grown in the balcony. I water them daily in the morning, only at the roots. But I add spanish moss around their roots to keep some moisture in.

I found that vandas can grow and flower at my balcony. They only get the morning sun, and about 3000 foot candle of light from the sun. You will need to find out what orchids do well in your environment, and stick with those. Then you can start enjoying the hobby.
