I have a new root and the last bloom spike is peeking out (maybe). Mine is getting fed every couple of days like my Vandas. Soak long and then let dry.

Gave mine a big watering early this am. Now the fans are going for air movement. The spike is still there but it looks a bit stalled. Not sure if it is going to bloom or not. We shall see.

My Podangis has a new root! I have it on the west side of the GH in a semi-shaded part in a very loose mixture. It gets watered every other day unless the medium is still damp.
