Peter,

That's spectacular. Have always loved blue Vandas, the bluer the better. But have never any good results growing them this far north (Rochester,NY).
What's the secret? Is it light, heat, feed, or all of the above?

Charlie,

I grow it high in the greenhouse about 10 feet from the aqua fogger! It gets spray a few times daily in the heat and loves to be sprayed a couple of times a month with a 20-20-20 fertilizer. It blooms twice a year! I keep spanish moss draped over the basket as well. My green house is covered with 73% shade cloth. Humidity is 70% most of the time. Winter nights get down to 48degrees F.

thanks

Peter,

Thanks for the cultural info. I may have to take another pass at these.
