Hey folks...check out YouTube Orchid Diva. She's in South FL. and attaches plants to her palms and grows under a canopy. Area looks like a park!

this little pocket of neighborhodd happens to be really old and that makes for AMAZING plants...one guy has a MASSIVE Schom. colony (like 8-10' across without spikes) in a huge royal poinsiana tree...it is MAGIC in the spring.

I have stopped to talk to him a few times and he appreciates the plant but not an orchid person...he thinks i am insane

Wow, those are some nice Vandas, and a really cool way to grow them. I was feeling a little experimental this summer and I got several types I've never tried before including a big Vanda. I can't grow it outside all year, and I don't know how well it will do inside during the winter with in the low humidity with the roots completely exposed, but it's doing great outside right now, and our outdoor humidity is usually only in the 40s. It had one spike when I bought it, and now it has another one just starting, so I guess it's happy so far.

that's a great setup, surprised RF has not done that on their grounds. If I lived anywhere near there I would stop by on a saturday afternoon and chat a bit with whomever is in charge of this masterpiece of vanda culture. Am sure they are watered and fed (heavy)regularly, sunlight and air movement should be no concern, possibly some fungicide from time to time to avoid the thai crud, but all in all.... wow!!!

Pls do not post the exact location or these plants will disappear before you know it. Hope owner has a security camera trained on whole front yard...

Thank you for posting

just a couple more cents after a closer look. Those are mokara hybrids and not strap leaved vandas. They can take more sun than strap leaved and can be more floriferous. Usually sold at shows (redlands) as a bare root plant as they are used in the cut flower industry in Thailand and get cut frequently. Closest I got to something like that was an 18 inch clay pot with 4-5 semi terete vandas and large lava rock or charcoal ichunks n pot. Grown in full sun, watered by sprinklers daily and fed at 1 TBSP per gallon twice a week and voila, within a couple of years you have a permanent vanda blooming cluster

DC, I realize iguanas are not native there (instead, naturalized), but from your first post on the thread, I wonder why people want to keep iguanas out of the trees?

Three reasons I know of.

One, they poop a lot and people don’t want that
Two, they sleep and breed in the trees so people want to reduce the places for that and reduce their spread, and
Three, they eat plants, especially love flower spikes, so if you are growing a plant whose flowers you value....you want them out

They cause millions in damage to roads and bridges and sea walls and they out compete local lizards. Green devils lol
