Grown for their showy flowers, Vanda orchids have been cultivated to produce these intense coloured blooms that can last for weeks. Ideal for a bathroom environment, Vanda orchids love high humidity and require their roots to be showered or bathed regularly.
These orchids grow epiphytically (attached to a tree) and don't require any soil. Give your Vanda orchid bright filtered light for several hours per day, with plenty of humidity. During the summer soak the roots in rain water* a couple of times a week, but during the winter reduce this. Roots will appear silvery when dry, and green when hydrated.
*Rain water is preferred but the plant should tolerate normal tap water.
Height or length - 60cm approx (not including the roots)
