Vanda

care

Temperature

Vanda's do very well at normal room temperatures, between 18 and 27 degrees Celsius. With the right temperature and lots of light, the plant will grow actively throughout the year.

light

A Vanda orchid needs a lot of light to thrive. Avoid direct sunlight in the summer: therefore the leaves of the plant turn pale and pale green. Leaves can also shrivel. Too little light will cause the leaves to turn dark green. The plant will then no longer flower. When opening the flower, it has to come in color.
Extra light in the flowering stage ensures a beautiful clear flower color.
After ten days the flowers have grown to their full size.

Water

Fill the vase with water twice a week during sunny, warm periods. In cloudy and cool periods this only needs to be done once a week.
When filling the vase with water, the roots absorb the water like a sponge. After about thirty minutes no more air bubbles appear and the roots are saturated. Then remove the remaining water from the vase. The plant has now stored enough water in the roots for a few days.

Fertilization

Use a normal, balanced fertilizer for the Vanda. This is available at a florist or garden center. Add the manure to the water once a month.

New bloom

When the flowers have finished flowering, the flower branch can be cut out. After a few months, depending on the amount of daylight present, a new branch will appear. Place the plant in a cool place for a few weeks to promote flowering. This place must never be colder than 15 degrees Celsius.

In the meantime, the Vanda must receive normal water: the plant does not have a rest period like other orchid species. It is not necessary to put it away in the dark: leave the plant in a light place.

Vanda, The jewel among orchids.
