    Default Vanda Roeblingiana

    I have 5 different plants of these.

    I group 4 of these in a hanging basket with sphagnmum moss while the 5th one is growing solo established on a piece of tree branch.

    The first photo is the plant mounted on a tree branch.

    Are you growing Philippine orchid species or both hybrid and species?

    Randy keep the plants cool as in a semi-shaded place with plenty of humidity. My roeblingiana group of 4 is planted in a open (plastic) basket with sphagnmum moss as medium. The solo plant I got it established on a tree branch with plenty of moss and lichens clinging to it. I keep them in partial shade / filtered bright light away from heat.

    When I first got my plants I treated them with SuperThrive to lessen plant shock and to encourage plant growth. So far ever since I've used this auxin with B1 vitamin, it has greatly reduced my mortality rate for new plants that I have acquired specially from those vendors who got sourced/harvested their plants from the wild.

    I keep telling myself I have enough orchids...then I see something like this. I think I added this one to my wish list awhile back...because no list would be complete without this beauty! The lip is too cool...and the colors. I'll find one someday...

    There are varieties of this plant with a deeper, richer red coloration. Unfortunately, I haven't come across those yet from my vendor. Hoping I find one of those someday. Did you see the photo I posted in randy's thread of the outstanding Roeblingiana clone that I lifted from the iospe website? When you see that, I bet you'll totally fall in love with this plant specially that particular clone variety.
