Default Vandas in SH was Rhynchostylis care questions

I have a couple vanda-like things in SH. They have sort of climbed up
out of the pot, but seem very happy to do so.

Since I really enjoy Web research, and I love to find out more about
different orchid types that I had never heard of before, couldn't resist
looking for this one. The simplified answer I got from a preliminary Web
search seems to be "Rhynchostylis will tolerate care that is just like a
Vanda's only less light." In answer to your question about s/h culture, I
went to First Rays' site (http://www.firstrays.com/hydro.htm) and noticed
the following statement that I think applies here "I've not had the guts to
try tolumnias or vandaceous orchids as yet, but I'll get there eventually. "

A few links on Rhynchostylis ca

Do a Find on "Rhynchostylis" in the following page to get to the paragraphs
on care of the 3 types, further down the page:

There seem to be more culture sheets for Rhynchostylis giganthea out there
than for either of the other two, so if you have a giganthea, here are some
culture sheets specific to it:

Which Rhynchostylis? We treat gigantea rather differently than we treat
coelestis, and haven't yet tried retusa.
