The Vanda orchid has a wild, vibrant appearance. The genus is highly prized in horticulture for its showy, fragrant, long lasting, and intensely colourful flowers.
Colours: A wide variety of colours
Origin: Northern Thailand
Flowering period: Vanda doesn’t have a fixed flowering period and can bloom several times in a year
Feeding: Feed once a month in summer by adding feed to the water, and once every two months at other times of the year
Location: Hang the vanda in a spot where it gets as much light as possible but avoid direct sunlight in summer
Temperature: Grows best in temperatures of 18° to 25°C
Watering: Water the plant by fully submerging the roots into tepid water for about 10 minutes (or until air bubbles stop appearing from the roots) before re-hanging
Encouraging your Vanda orchid to re-flower:
Cut the branch as short as possible after flowering without causing damage to the plant. Vandas have no fixed flowering time and can bloom several times a year. The new bud develops under a new leaf, from which a new branch will grow.
