    Is it better to grow them in a vanda pot or an empty clay pot? Mine is in a basket with wine corks for stability and I won't mind switching it to a empty pot.

    If you are still trying to get it out of the pot, first, I would shatter the pot. I have done this a number of times, and have no problems sacrificing a clay pot. The plant is what I value, not the pot. Once it is in pieces, I gently pry any clinging roots by taking an unused tag and gently working it between the root and the pot. Eventually the velamin will release, but be especially careful around the root tips since they are easily damaged. I notice they get less damage, and tend to release easier if they are NOT wet. After getting it out of the pot, I carefully / gently work the roots between the slats of a wooden basket. I prefer hanging baskets since they drain easier, and seem ideal for most of my vandas.

    Charlie I have one in the clay pot as you see and one in a wine cork Vanda basket. Not sure which is "better" but I can say the one in the pot only needs to be watered once a day. I spray the wine cork one two to three times depending on it and my schedule.
