Cultural Topic: Vandas

(1) Arching Vandaceous Orchids

Vandaceous orchids such as those in the genera (Rhynchostylis and Aerides) sometimes produce inflorescences that are hidden in the foliage. This can be remedied by gently wedging a short piece of bamboo stake between the leaves and the inflorescence to force the flowers to present outside the foliage.

(2) Primping a Vanda

Vandas present better if the flowers are gently "flattened". This is best done after the flowers have been open a day, Vandas, especially, need copious amounts of water as buds are developing to plump up the flowers. Water twice a day during the dry season.
