    Hey Betty!
    I have two 400 watt metal halide lights with reflectors do you think if I hung them close that would be enough light. I was aware that they need watering everyday when bare root, do they also need daily watering when potted?

    I water by dipping the pots about every week . In the summer, I spray the plants as often as I can , maybe every other day.
    As to direct sunlight , I have two layers of say 40% shade cloth on the glass for six months of the year....
    I also grow cattelyas, oncidiums, paphs, etc., all in more or less the same conditions - actually the vandas hang up to get better natural light, whereas the other stuff is on the benches below.

    I have about 150 Vandas, currently have flowers or spikes on about 30 of them.

    'Nuff said ?

    I believe that all you need is one light for one vanda! Be careful; play with it and make sure it does not get too much light. (leaves start turning red.) Actually, "grow lights" are better...you can get them at a big box store. Betty :-)
