    Many orchids are grown in baskets with very little , or no medium. They are epiphytes.

    Where are you growing your orchids?

    I have it in a 4 inch pot inside a clay pot with many holes in the sides of it.
    It sits 2 feet from a eastern facing window.

    Vanda require the highest heat, light and water with lots of air circulation of any other orchid I know.

    I had a Vanda and gave it to a friend that has a green house because I can not meet the requirments growing on my windowsill.

    You might want to google Vanda culture

    I guess I would wonder why it has only 2 roots?

    And It would be helpful if you offered a description of your growing environment.
