    i always water my plants every morning and since i am growing outdoors i also water them
    in the afternoon (or when i still have the energy to do so). I fertilize mine with fish/guano/
    seaweed extract when i remember it which is about 1x a month, on some of my orchids i
    put a osmocote wrap in a piece of pantyhose. I find that the secret with Vandas is lots of
    water, high humidity and lots of sun (strap leaf can take less otherwise they burn their leaves).
    Hope this helps.

    I think you have a terete intergeneric Vanda hybrid, maybe this plant was developed in Thailand or Singapore.

    I think this hybrid was release early 1990's in our place since there was an economic boom of cutflower and orchid industries in the cities of Davao and Cagayan de Oro.

    Let's make a guess?

    My guess would be a cross between ASCOCENDA (Ascocentrum x Vanda) x Papillionanthe teres x Euanthe sanderiana var. Alba...

    It is very complex and complicated to know their parents.
    If you do have Vanda orchid book of hybrids from Thailand, you'll surely know them as many as you could.

    and how many times u put the fertilizer in a mouth
    I assume you mean "month" here not "mouth"....

    Like i said i used a local fertilizer that consists of fish emulsion + guano + seaweed
    extract its very smelly the wife hates it but its a good fertilizer. I dont really have a
    regular fertilizing regimen, i just fertilize when i remember or feel like it. And for some I
    have placed osmocote inside a pantyhose so that the orchids are fertilized every
    watering. What can I say, im lazy when it comes to fertilizers.

    as for fungicide and insecticides i only apply when i see signs of problems otherwise i leave
    them be. Of course regular application of both is not bad so its up to you. I do however
    add a few drops of rooting hormone when i apply ferts.
