(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.
