Vanda orchid hybrid: Sunray x Gordon Dillon

Vanda orchid

Vanda species

Plants of Home and Garden, Orchids

Grow outside in light shade or full sun, in warm climates with day temperatures 65F/18C or more year-round, or overwinter indoors in sunny spot. Strap-leaved types better suited to light shade and colder climates, needing less light than terete and semi-terete types. Grow in coarse, well-drained orchid medium. 80% humidity and good ventilation required on hot, sunny days; on such days, outdoor plants may need watering and misting several times per day. Water sparingly in winter or on cloudy, cool days

Feed weekly with a balanced fertilizer, every two weeks in winter, when an occasional high-phosphate feed may be helpful. Repot in spring, only when potting medium has broken down, and protect until new root growth has occured. Can be grown also from stem cuttings rooted in summer using bottom heat, each section with aerial roots
