    LOL You would never flower a Vanda under compact fluorescent. Well, I shouldn't say never, but its highly unlikely. Those bugars love full sun all day long. Either grow them in a basket with no media or you an put very large charcoal chunks or wine corks. They like to be watered every day, and since there is no media they dry out before night fall. The biggest issue though I don't think your going to flower a Species vanda or most primary hybreds without full sun. For the price of those baby's you need a GH to kive them all the light they can take. Provided your not in an area where they can live outdoors all year long.

    On a side note, lol, be cautious with that seller. I purchased a Nepenthes from them in September, and still to this day - no plant, no refund, no email communication. Judging by thier feedback, they have done this more than a few times.

    Sadly, yes. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img] Looks like they've had 18 negative feedback comments on their account just in the last month. Looks like the majority of people get their item okay, but I dunno....I just wouldn't completely trust them.

    I have bought a few neps from them..
    The first one came very quickly, I just purchased the last 2 well a few weeks ago..
    I have had no problem communicating with them at all.

    From what they told me, the way their shipping works has changed.. to much typing I am just going to paste the messages I got from them.

    able to ship without it.
    We should have it tomorrow, and then the plants will be shipped to a
    transfer station in Minnesota.
    In the future we will have the plants arrive to Minnesota first before
    listing (we use to be able to ship straight from Canada before) and it
    will
    be listed under the userid (farmerbrowns).
    I will notify you of when the plants leave the transfer station in
    Minnesota.

    Ok now I am going to hyjak your thread.

    I have been thinking of branching out as well. I am hoping someone can suggest a few good starter orchids. I don't have no fancy grow chamber or anything like that.

    I can provide a nice spot by the patio door during the winter, and from what i can tell good-great outdoor conditions during the summer.

    The patio spot gets full morning sun until about 11am. Bright indirect light the rest of the day.
    Temps 70ish during the day 65ish at night.
    So far this winter I am keeping the humidity up near 60%.

    Something alittle flashy would be nice, but I'll let you guys help point me towards some good newb orchids.
