Vanda seedlings age about one year from flask and take about 1 – 2 years to get flowers. As a baby, we need to check and adjust the environment to suit with those varieties. The aerial root system of Vanda, we don’t need the medium for Vanda. We can place in a basket or mesh then repot later.
Appropriate light and wind flow will support for good health of seedlings. 60 % shaded would be okay for bigger size of Seedlings. If new born from flask, we should keep away from direct sunlight about 1 – 2 week. The seedlings don’t like windy which make root too dry.
Vanda growing without the medium so we need to spray water long enough, about 5 – 8 min in the morning. In summer, we spray for 2 times a day.
Fertilizer and Fungicide
We need Fertilizer and Fungicide to make our plants healthy and growing up. To get plant healthy, we need 16-21-27 (N-P-K) by spraying once a week for 3 weeks and switch with the Balanced Fertilizer 16-16-16 or 20-20-20 in the fourth week. The Fungicide – Captan should spray separately from fertilizer once a week.
Vanda prefers temperature above 18 C or 65 F. They can tolerate lower temp but will impact to plant’s growth and flowering.
