I just bought Sugar Suite. It had been in bloom for a while before I purchased it. The bud has now dropped. It’s in the house and 5’ from a south facing window with an overhang. I could move it to my desk which is closer.

It’s a paph. Not a vanda.

As long as it doesn't get any direct sun it would definitely like to be closer to the window.

Do your paphs bloom in any particular season?

Maybe I misunderstood. I thought your photos showed the two plants you just bought?

Yes, they are generally somewhat repeatable year to year (i.e., could be off by a month or so). With a large enough collection you can have Paphs in bloom all year long. Were you looking to have something in bloom at a certain time of year?
