Orchids in the genus Vanda are so diverse that in the past some species were classified in separate genera. The attractive fragrant flowers make Vanda species popular with florists, and there are a great many hybrids, developed in efforts to minimize the rather rambling natural growth habit and produce a greater density of valuable blooms on a more compact plant.
Cultivation Small plants can be grown a basket or a pot, but larger Vanda species produce large stout roots that are not easily contained. Thus the plants are often grown in baskets with little to no compost with the roots simply hanging free. In such cases the plants need very regular watering and feeding. All Vanda orchids need strong sunlight and consistent growing conditions. Few of them cope well with daily or seasonal variations in temperature or humidity.

Vanda orchids are monopodials (they grow from a single, upright stem) with long, strappy leaves fanning outward. The flower spikes along the top part of the stem on mature plants. Vanda orchids can bloom 2 or 3 times a year, as long as their needs are met. The aerial root system of vanda doesn’t need the medium, only watering. Bright light and cool nights will spark blooming.
