Where'd my previous post go???? Lou is gorgeous! Is this one I sent to you? Well, either way, it's so wonderful to see it blooming and I'd love to smell it.
Would you believe I have 4 of these? The one from you is also in bloom now (as are all of them), but the one has more flowers this time.
Is it just in a pot with some coir strands?
More that some. I wrap the roots fairly tight with coir.
Excellent. I can smell it from here!
They do have a lovely fragrance.

I like coir for my Neos and other Vandaceous. It drains quickly and although it doesn't really hold water, it hold the moisture from the watering on the roots. Very airy, so no root-rot.

I had recently put my Vanda into a mesh pot with coir strands surrounding the roots. It's good to know I'm on the right track. ^_^
