    Willeke, I forgot to mention that the nub has been there for weeks and hasn't seemed to have grown at all. I'm hoping maybe it'll start back growing when the current blooms fade away, because I imagine that the plant's putting all of it's energy into blooming them now ??? Just a guess. Again...???

    Vicky, I must admit It does not sound like a spike, but you never know. I can be a keiki. I did have that with an Asco. That one also got a nub that turned out to be a keiki.

    No, it's not growing upside down. It's actually "growing" right-side up, but it and it's basket are hanging practically horizontally.

I didn't initially post this picture because my gh is so cluttered.

    When the Vanda was very young and small, it and it's basket was hanging correctly-upright but over time the wire hanger got out of shape because of the way I handle it every day when I soak the plant in it's bucket. I had decided fairly recently to re-do it so that it would hang upright again, but I haven't exactly figured out how to. I've been thinking about hanging it from a longer and sturdier wire hanger and tying the plant to the hanger with pantyhose (although it and it's basket would still hang very slightly sideways-in my mind, at least-and I haven't convinced myself 100% that tieing the plant wouldn't harm it), but then it bloomed and because of the weight of the blooms, the basket fell over on it's side even more. I'd really like to hang it another way, keeping my growing space in mind, so that it would hang TOTALLY upright, but I can't figure out how. If you or anyone have suggestions, I would very much appreciate you sharing them with me. Back to the wire hanger, the longest one I have found so far is 30". I would like to find a longer one that would accompany the height of the plant, but haven't been able to so far.
    First of all, absolutely beautiful Vanda! And just an idea for hanging it upright: you can attach a single wire to the basket, wherever makes sense, and then just use panty hose or anything relatively soft to attach the plant to the wire once or twice. Hope this helps!

    Thank you, Gage! Great idea, but I'm not totally clear (which is not uncommon for me). If I were to hang the plant from a single wire, how would I deal with the 4 round hangers on each corner of the basket?

    Since your Vanda seems to be well attached to the basket, you can just attach the wire to one of the 4 corners. If the plant is growing vertically in relation to the basket, you can use 4 wires the traditional way. But if the plant is growing to the side in relation to the basket, there is no good way to "straighten" it in the basket, so I would just pick a corner and attach a wire. Just think of the basket as a mount, with no up or down, and the basket is just something to attach a wire to. Better to have the plant straight up and down in your greenhouse. Just to clarify, the end result I'm describing will be a Vanda in the normal vertical position, with its basket somewhat sideways with a single wire attached to one corner, and the plant anchored to the wire with panty hose or whatever you wish to use. Make sense?

    It is a puzzle picture ; Is it upside down ? But then the grass is in a peculiar place ! Has it fallen out of its pot ? I suspect it is being grown bare-root and is hanging sidewyas.
    Maybe you know ; maybe its deliberate, maybe you don't care... But the plant ( large flowered vandas ) actually like to have their stem vertical and the growing poiint at the top; if left like this, the new growth will try to turn upwards and you end up with a corkscrew of a plant.

    Hope you don't mind me saying this Vicki - and if that's the way you want it, that is 100% AOK with me.

    Hello Dorsetman...
    Goodness no, I certainly don't mind your comments! In fact, I very much appreciate your input and concern. First, I want to apologize that the picture seems to be somewhat of a puzzle. It would to me, as well. Actually, I most likely would have been surprised if someone had not noticed that it looks to be hanging in an odd position. It is (but not on purpose).

    Earlier in this thread, another member (Naoki) asked basically the same question as you and here is the explanation that I gave her:


    No, it's not growing upside down. It's actually "growing" right-side up, but it and it's basket are hanging practically horizontally. I'm sending another picture of it inside my greenhouse so you may be able to see it better than the one you saw with it hanging from a pole out in our lawn. I didn't initially post this picture because my gh is so cluttered.

    When the Vanda was very young and small, it and it's basket was hanging correctly-upright but over time the wire hanger got out of shape because of the way I handle it every day when I soak the plant in it's bucket. I had decided fairly recently to re-do it so that it would hang upright again, but I haven't exactly figured out how to. I've been thinking about hanging it from a longer and sturdier wire hanger and tying the plant to the hanger with pantyhose (although it and it's basket would still hang very slightly sideways-in my mind, at least-and I haven't convinced myself 100% that tieing the plant wouldn't harm it), but then it bloomed and because of the weight of the blooms, the basket fell over on it's side even more. I'd really like to hang it another way, keeping my growing space in mind, so that it would hang TOTALLY upright (as it initially used to), but I can't figure out how. If you or anyone have suggestions, I would very much appreciate you sharing them with me. Back to the wire hanger, the longest one I have found so far is 30". I would like to find a longer one that would accompany the height of the plant, but haven't been able to so far.

    Thank you for asking the question because I have even thought about starting a new thread sometime requesting advice.

    Another thing.....I'm sorry my explanation/question is so wordy. I talk a lot and often get carried away, so I was afraid this was going to happen.
    Thanks again,
    Vicki


    Dorsetman, I would appreciate any more comments and/or advice that you may have for me. I already have one suggestion of how to re-hang it, by Gage-also in this thread, but I haven't had a chance to mull over her instructions in my mind yet so I'll be able to determine if I understand her advice and also check out if it will work for me. Also, I believe what I'm saying about the way it was hanging when you saw the picture may make a little more sense if you take a look at the other picture I sent to her, if you don't mind, of course. Now, am I making myself as clear as mud?! Probably so! lol
    Thanks again for your reply,
    Vicki
