    Default Vanda lilacina

    I just bought a V. lilacina and it came potted in charcoal and some large gravel. I would like to hang it in a basket with out any potting medium like my other vandas. Does any body have any experience with this species?

    Good buy, Treat it like any other vanda. More light and more humidity
