No, I mean whack off and throw away the tops so the pot fits in the car. I bet it would come back from the roots.

I don't think so... certainly not in my lifetime.

In my experience with Sobralias, the roots and center knot of growth are more important than the twigs. I've saved a few that had been pretty badly damaged. If the roots were mostly OK they recovered fine. One had been growing in a toppled tree. The twigs were all crushed and mangled, but the roots were in good shape. I peeled the roots off the bark as best I could and tied it to my mango tree's trunk. Within a month or so I had several new shoots developing. That was a S. chrysostoma. But I've had similar experiences with others as well.

Wow. So I just did a little looking and these are expensive if you live in Florida. No one has them local (a little surprising) and it’s like $30 plus shipping for a seedling on a few websites. Are they similarly priced elsewhere?

I find some orchids are HUGELY geographically priced while others are not. Just curious.

This is a very cool genus

DC -
Cal Orchid sells a lot of these in 1-gallon pots, I think for around $25 or so... big husky, blooming-size plants. So it probably is geographic...on the other hand you have a bigger supply of Vandas... I'd expect that most Sobralias would do fine in Florida.
