Caring For Vanda Orchids

Vandas thrive in Florida and Hawaii because of the high temperatures and high light.  The temperature for a Vanda should never go below 60oF.  A constant temperature of 70oF is ideal for most Vandas.  The steady temperature results in lustier growth and more blooms.
A bright, hot southern window exposure is the perfect condition for a Vanda.  Anywhere where they can be watered and fertilized is ideal.  Vandas require more water because of the high temperatures and light conditions. Constant fertilizing is a good idea to help the plant combat stress.  Vandas like a total soaking, whether in just plain water or a water fertilizer mix.
Repotting Vandas should be avoided at all costs!  Their roots resent it so much that it can take many years for them to recover.
