    Hi Angel that is very typical of Vandopsis from the pictures I can see they begin to produce new leaves personally I think you need to separate the plant into individual pot and try to make / get huge clay pot as this plant later will reach more than a meter in optimal condition, the roots basically I dont see any green tip my suggestion immediately you got huge pot use whatever string to stabilize the plant than get the dried leaves to maintain humidity or can add in the coconut chips. Before you use coconut chips please soak for the next 10 hours with fungicide than clean and ready to be used. Usually it will facilitate the new roots. Once the new roots already established than further development will be enhancing.Good luck Angel.

    Thanks for the confirmation, Zainal. I am very happy because I was hoping that this would turn out to be one of our Philippine endemic orchids and indeed it is. I simply attached one to a slab of wood and hanged it where it gets some dappled afternoon sun and the other one is attached near the base of a tree with a little more sunlight exposure. There are new roots now but the one hanging looks healthier although the other one is also OK.

    But I see in literature that the lissochiloides needs full sun. That could be a problem for me since I don't have any open spaces where they can get full sun. My grammatophyllum is also in a shaded spot.

    Oh that's lovely!

    *sigh* Such a shame it is not a mini ... I will have to content myself with living vicariously through others such as yourself, Zain.
