    Default Vanda help

    Hello all!
    I am in the market for a little help with my vanda orchid. I purchased a distressed looking Vanda about 3 weeks ago hoping to bring it back to life. I have no experience caring for Vandas, alas, I am unsure what I am doing wrong. When I first bought the orchid it's leaves were somewhat yellowing and you could see fertilizer dried on the leaves. I live in Calgary, Alberta Canada and am growing it indoors.It is growing in a slotted teak basket with no medium. I have it in a window where it gets sun early morning until around 12 noon. Over the weeks that I have had the orchid the leaves have continued to yellow. I am watering it at least once per day as it is very dry where I live. I have tried just spritzing it with water as well as immersing it in the sink full of water for ~10 minutes. I don't want to lose it. I fertilize it every 1-2 weeks. A lot of the roots were dead so I cut them off. Is there any way to help save this Vanda. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance,
    Tamara

    Hi Tamara,

    You might want to consider moving to the Amazon.
