It's only April and this plant Vanda Kiwi Bob is showing signs of a second spike already. So to amuse myself I thought I would record how many times it blooms this year.

Grown bareroot in a glass vase, watered twice a week in a south facing window with no supplemental lighting.

Feel free to add to the thread any of your star performers.

very nice.
Look at those roots.
It's very hard to find what orchids will do well in our climate so I thought a Neostylis lou sneary would be a good choice but it's only just grown a leaf.
How long have you had yours for?

I think I got this plant back in 2014 as a small seedling, so it has grown fairly quickly. How long have you had Lou for?

congrats jcec,
lou is producing a new root. Only got him last year but I've cheated and moved him from the window. He prefers his new spot under artificial lighting I think.

This vanda was only just registered a couple of years ago from what I can see, you did well getting a seedling so long ago.

The Motes, who bred this, visited Scotland a few years ago and took orders for seedlings, I bought four at £7 a plant. They are all doing well.
