    Default I find Dyakia hendersoniana to be interesting

    I see that Dyakia hendersoniana is in the Vanda tribe. Does it need Vanda growing culture or is it more tolerant?

    And is there any reason it could not be grown in a pot?

    I've had one in a small pot for the last 4 years. It's grown quite a bit but still no flowers. I think that's because I'm growing it on the bench surrounded by other, taller orchids, so it doesn't get a lot of light, which I think this species needs to bloom. If you decide to grow it in a pot choose a small one and use a medium with very good drainage. Mine needs repotting now that the medium (large bark with some perlite) is breaking down ... and I think I'll put it in a small wooden basket this time so I can give it more light.

    I don't have a green house and I am not able to hang anything, so I guess I won't try it
