Vanda leaves are supposed to be long lasting, lasting years or so. Mine lost 2 leaves in the half year that I've owned it. I can grow phals, oncs, dens...except vandas. They are considered "tropical" orchids. I just wish I have a greenhouse, but what can I do about it? *sigh*
Mine only has 4 leaves (used to have 6) and one new one that's the same size for weeks and weeks. Great.
I'm giving it humidity and more moisture around the roots by putting sphag around it and putting the whole plant inside a bag. Ever since the treatment it has not changed much...maybe leaves a little bit perked up? Or maybe just my imagination. Getting impatient.
i got a vanda in August and I set up a 150w halogen quartz light (worklight) and so far I don't have a problem. a leaf has grown and a new one about half an inch slowwwly growing. From what I read from forums
(search the forum here), vanda needs a HIGH light. I just added about a week ago, a compack flourescent light in my growing area...
Also, when misting, I dont wet the leaf. I mist the roots growing everywhere.
