    Tommy, those are nicely flowered. Mine is in spike with no branching. How do you grow it?

    Hi Clark

    The last flowering on this plant had an unbranched spike with 12-14 flowers.
    This time it has 6-7 branches and 53 flower, why? I don't realy know.

    I use to grow them intermediat, they hang outside in the garden from mid may til mid september getting temperatures down to 10-12 degress like it says in the books.

    Last summer I hade them in the greenhouse all the time. They get a couple of nights with themperatures down to 15 degress, but normaly 17-18.
    A lot of water all the time. I grow most of my Vandas in EpiWeb, a material that is a lot like Dicksoniana. http://www.epiweb.se/

    Tommy, mine had a bit of a set back this past year. Purchased it from Andy's Orchid. The wood mount started rotting and did some severe root damage. I have a second on a stick and 6 seedlings in a compot ready for mounting next year.

    Thanks for the growing information!
