    Smile My vanda's and ascocenda's

    I have 4 vanda's and 3 ascocenda's. I grow them in vases. They get sprayed every day, and I soak them once a week. Once every two weeks they get fertilizer. And they get a lot of sun. Three plants are still seedlings. Is this allright or should i do something different. They are doing well so far. They are growing well, and getting new leaves. Thanks a lot so far. From the seedlings I dont have pictures yet.

    Thanks a lot. Yes they do look fine, but it's always nice to get some information, especially about the seedlings.You never know if there's someone to can give some more information about how to take care of them. Such as can seedlings also stand in the sun. Hope someone can help me.

    Wow! How beautiful! Could you explain how you grow them in vases? Is there any medium?

    No, There's no medium. They just stand in the vases with the roots. So it's very good for the humidity. Here in Holland a lot of people grow them like that. Most people don't have room for greenhouses, and you can't put them oudside 24/7. So when they're in vases you can put them in the windowsill.
