All these previous posts give good advice with very through information. I recently received a well packed Ascocenda from Cold Wisconsin. It arrived in a timely manner with a warm 'heat pack'. Still, it hated the trip and lost three leaves and a a month later the low spike it came with went the way of the leaves. The good news is that with twice a day watering its growing a new leaf and new roots now. Your plant looks healthy and hardy. It should be just fine. I agree that as long as temperatures are not to cool where drying off takes to long, that yes Vanda types usually love the extra watering. AL
The average hottest daily temperature in my locale is 32 degrees celsius. Given this and the location of my vandas which receive direct sunlight for at least half the day, then watering twice daily would be fine.
In my experience, sunlight is the factor that most affects flowering, aside from the amount of phosphorus you give it.
dont worry looks like the first flowering for a seedling...spike is in heaven now....ull get another in a few months with the right care
Glad I came across this thread last week, as this week the small new bud blasted on a Vanda Pachara Delight I just got. I bought it about two weeks ago at an orchid show, and was excited about getting to watch the spike grow before my eyes and see the flowers unfold. Now I know that may not really be the best time to get an orchid since they seem to be sensitive at that stage to changes. The rest of the plant looks good; new leaves and roots growing.
You say your "new to orchids and love them" huh,.. Be careful you will soon be acquiring many of them lol they get addictive...
