    I know exactly what you mean when the roots are very long... there are a few trick you can do... first you can soak the roots so that it because pliable thus you have a chance of potting
    it without damaging... if that fails.... get a pail, bore holes to it and then put it in wife hates me when I do this one.

    It sometimes takes several minutes to fully water a vanda. I water and might have to go back several times.
    You are looking for the root to change color, from silvery white to bright apple green. Then and only then are they sufficiently watered. If they are overly dry they might repel water instead of absorbing it.

    Mabuhay!

    @dukejenn.....i would suggest to cut off the flowers so that the energy will go to the formation of roots and new growth.
    goodluck and Congrats.
