    Chilochista usneoides a leafless orchid epiphyte member of vanda alliance, they do have leaf but only short period of growing period, so theirs roots performed photosynthesis.

    Nice blooming! I'm also interested in your growing area. Is it covered with a plastic or is it only shade cloth and so open to the rain?

    it's a plastic sheat that allowed the sunlight passed for 50 or 70 percent depend on the kind of sheat selacted, the rain can pass througth the sheat.

    noioi, I grow mainly species... hybrid Chilochista don't make it easier in my cool condition in winter either.

    Is it your own plants? or You just took photos at show?

    Thanks, Noioi, that answers my question very nicely. That is what we call shade cloth (at least in the US). It looks as if there is some moss on the group of Chilochista in the image. If that is what I am seeing, do they grow with moss on them normally? I understood that they needed to dry quickly and not have moss.

    The exhibits in the shade-cloth image are outstanding.
