    Default my damaged vanda orchid

    Hello
    So bad winter has damaged my vanda
    Yesterday I cut off all dead parts and you can see what I have now ...
    Question is simple - is it over ? or what can I do for survival of my plant ?
    You can see on photo leaves are bit warped so I tried put it into bottle of water for an hour and I have this plant in my greenhouse . Is there anything more what can I do ?

    thanks

    Geez...a rootless vanda...those are kind of tough!

    You may want to put it in a place with really high humidity and wrap a bit of spag around the base..I'd also paint the base with some sort of rooting hormone and hope for the best.

    Good lucK!

    I hate to be the barer of bad news, but the future for it looks a little bleak. However, never say never. Try Clints plan, it couldn't hurt

    I don't know about Vandas specifically, but plants generally tend to root better in darker locations.

    like Clint says, moss on the "root area" and put in a zip lock bag... helps with the humidity issue, and like Sand Tiger says "If you have a favorite prayer use it now". Good luck!!
