Mise à jour:
GENERAL INFO Vanda originally grow in Burma (now Myanmar) and are parents of the hybrids we know. The most remarkable is Vanda coerulea, a splendid species bearing light blue flowers. Crossed with Euanthe sanderiana from Philippines, it gave us one of the most known hybrids, Vanda Rothschildiana. Vanda are ususally large with narrow and oval shaped leaves appearing by pair from a central upright rhizome.
CULTURAL REQUIREMENTS Vanda and their relative genera Ascocenda (Vanda X Ascocentrum) can be cultivated with Cattleya, since their cultural requirements are similar. Vanda are usually cultivated in wooden baskets, hanged near a sunny window or under a high pressure sodium lamp to receive as much light as possible. They need dayly vaporisation. Flowering occurs in summer and is quite long..
LIGHT 2 000 to 3 000 foot-candles, 12 or 14 hours a day
TEMPERATURE From 18°C to 30°C in the day and from 13°C to 20°C at night.
