Caring for Violet

Light

Vandas, like most orchids, like bright filtered light. Avoid direct sunlight. The leaves should be a light apple-green colour. If they’re dark then your orchid needs more light.

Water & humidity

Water is key to success with the Vanda. It loves being in a humid tropical environment, however modern hybrids are happy in normal household conditions if they get enough H20. Dunk the roots in a deep pot or bowl for 15-20 minutes each day. Or mist at least twice a day ensuring plant gets dripping wet.

Feeding

Put a small amount of soluble orchid fertiliser in your misting bottle or water bowl once every 2 weeks during blooming. For the rest of the time, feed with a high Nitrogen fertiliser.

Re-potting

Vandas prefer being air plants, although sometimes they can be found growing in orchid mix and bark media. They can be placed in a glass vase or bowl, which provides a stunning display and also helps trap humidity around the roots. However, don’t leave the roots swimming in a vase of water, as they will drown without air. Rather spray water in the glass.

Atrium Top Tip

Vandas can flower at any time of the year, particularly during Spring and autumn. Keep them away from cool druaghts. 

Quirky plant fact

Vanda orchids form part of the Vandae plant tribe, consisting of almost a hundred species. They are the national flower of Singapore!
