    Angela, you have shown us that you have excellent conditions for growing Vanda orchids as your anual root growth is larger than most of us has in a lifetime ;-)

    You need to give the plant enough water and it will respond as your other plants by sending out alot of root. It may need daily soaking before more roots have grown out to give te plant time to suck up enough water.

    In Sweden, alot of people grow Vanda orchids barerooted in very dry appartments. The trick is to soak the plants in water for 15-25 minuts every second or third day.
