    Well I wanted to find out if someone could please tell me how to take a young plant from this parent plant that has been flowering for over a year now, I am trying to be able to cut the plant back (about seven to eight feet tall) but each time I try to do so another spike appears and right now that is the case where I have two spikes on the top and lower down the plant there is a young plant with one root, how can I cut that off without cutting the parent? I think when I got the parent plant it was a cutting from someone, flowers were on it but I planted it in a concrete pot and it has been there ever since getting like Jack's bean stalk, I would really love to get another plant from it.

    I would prefer to see more than one root on a piece before separating it. Try using a razor blade to cut about halfway through the stem where it connects to the parent plant, dust with cinnamon, tie it to keep it from flopping, and wait a couple of months to see if it grows more roots. Maybe put something that has rooting hormone in it low on the stem of the part you are trying to separate.

    Aranthera Ann Black which is your plant along with.....Arachnis Maggie Oei and Vanda Agnes Jaoquim are the most common vandas in our island....grow them on teak posts and concrete pillars...on coconut tree stumps...they practically care for themselves...i recently got 30 or so large cuttings from a grower who used them for cut flowers...i just tied them in bundles to some clay pillars...water often and thats it....prettty soon you may get fed up of them they are so vigorous....so dont worry too much about cutting the plant....leave it as is
