    I was just going to say...boy, are you in trouble. Instead of a monkey you have a vanda on your back.! Yew Sung beat me to it. Once this addiction starts, it is hard to kick. Just raise your hand and say...Hi I'm Jason and I am a vandaholic

    There is an old proverb around here , about more than one way to kill a cat ; but another one is about how many lives a cat has...meaning there are as many ways to grow a Vanda, as there are vanda growers , well, if not quite that many , nevertheless a great many.

    When I tell someone in Thailand that I use pots - not baskets, and that I put compost ( such as coconut husk chunks or pine bark chunks )in the baskets , they say , "oh no you can't grow vandas like that..."

    I do see vandas in glass vases at my local Garden centre ; I don't buty because they rarely have any plant/flower that I actually want, and their prices are OOT , but I do wonder how they get on. Hence my comments.
    Hi Geoff,
    I think all this stems to a matter of opinions i have given my reasons below for keeping to the vase method.
    My Vandas will be grown indoors and not in Greenhouses. When they are grown in colder conditions it is better for them if they have a little less air circulation, which the vase will cause and as they probably wont get the exact light conditions they will need to flower then the increased humidity will compensate this. There are pros and cons to everything and with orchids there seems to be a million and one opinions on what is right and wrong.
    Going off proven results provided to me from other members for the conditions i am able to provide for the Vanda at the moment the Vase method seems to give me the best chance of success.

    Cheers
    Jason
