    Aaaahhhh something to look forward to when I lil one grows up. Mine is quite small, but
    a very regular bloomer. Thank you for posting this one, Nelson. I bought mine last year
    after you posted some of your photos.

    Thank you, guys.

    Vanda lamellatas of all varieties are low maintenance plants. I am surprised to know your calayana variant "blooms regularly". Does that mean several times a year?

    My experience is that only the remediosae variant blooms continuously.

    The classic form and the boxallii and calayana variants bloom once a year only.

    A big plus: very fragrant.

    Mine blooms once a year, but it blooms EVERY year right on time. I love the fragrance!
