    Default Vandopsis lissochiloides

    Hello everyone! I ordered a seedling Vandopsis lissochiloides and I've got no idea how to care for it. It arrived pretty dried up with only a few good roots but has started to put out a new leaf and new root. Right now it's sitting in a tiny plastic basket with some coconut husk fiber to create humidity. I originally had the little basket filled with GrowStones (lighter, airier LECA-type material) but got worried that it would rot off the new root growth.

    Anyone have recommendations on how to grow this guy? Similar to a vanda in a basket with little to no potting material?

    Thanks!

    This is a rare one indeed. I have not seen one in cultivation here so can't offer any help, but it should enjoy vanda conditions. I understand that they are slow growers and can grow to quite a size.

    I have a Vandopsis...mine is Parishii. It came mounted on wood with a small bit of Sphagnum moss. Mine is a seedling...sold to me as near blooming size. Sigh... I grow it in the Vanda section and while it won't take terete vanda full sun, it takes a lot more than I thought the tiny thing could handle. I keep it with my Ascocenda and as it is mounted mine gets watered every day, and during the summer sometimes twice with misting in the late afternoons. It gets the same spraying regimen all my vanda get; Fertilizer, Anti-fungal/bacterial once a week, Bug killer twice monthly, unless it's very dry and then once a week. Honey, once or twice a month depending on the heat and sun. And micro-nutrients (cal-mag, silicone additive, kelp emulsion and superthrive), once a month. Best of luck...

    Treat like most vandas. Lots of high humidity and heat, temp above 20'C night. Light wise, grow it under Cattleya light, but once the plant has more leaf and roots u can increase to higher light level. Gotta tell you thou, the plant needs to be gigantic before it will bloom

    I agree with wonderlen treat like a vanda maintain your plant with current medium once the plant already established than change into big pot. Just have a look my plant I dont put any medium at all once reaching this stage.
