    maybe it's to warm on your place. This Vanda is growing in Yunnan and enjoy, cool and dry weather, during the winter time.
    My plant is already more then 1 m long. Slowly I'm getting to have space problem.

    I've moved mine away from the hybrids into a cooler drier spot in the shadehouse along with a couple more species vandas that like cooler temps
