Charlie I am hoping that you can keep youR plant alive too. This is only my second Vanda so there is a learning curve.
This morning I soaked the Vanda in seaweed and it slipped out of the pot. It was surprising that it was in a hanging plastic basket! This is telling me that this Vanda was NOT raised In a pot but stuffed inside of one once it was ready to be shipped. So in the span of a few days it was stuffed In a pot, kept in a hard dark truck for four days then purchased by me and kept inside for a week or so at lower humidity that it was accustomed too. No wonder it is having trouble. I cut off a lot of dead roots this morning and and hoping the Vanda makes it. I temporarily hung string on the basket and then hung that to a coat hanger (looks horrible) then hung it outside. I have some wire hangers coming in a week.
I'm starting to think it was the abrupt change in culture and shock of transport that didn't help.
