    Default Vanda with 3 keikis no bloom

    I have a vanda hybrid Pranerm ornate x butterfly. It has 3 keikis but no flower. 3 keikis at the bottom near the roots. 2 keikis around 6 inches or more the other around 4 inches. The 2 have good roots and I am planning to remove it thinking the mother plant will bloom. Any advice?

    I have vandas with keikis and it does not seem to affect their blooming, I leave them hoping to get a large mass with multiple blooms

    usually Vandas that aren't blooming mean they are not getting enough light...How are you culturing yours?
