I did however remove some of the lava and there's no problems at the present moment. I did notice that a couple of the lower leafs have some small wrinkles at the base. Is that normal? I went ahead and soaked it in a weak solution of fertilizer and it's going to be on a every other day or two watering schedule.

    You did the right thing,the plant has some stress but Vanda is a though so let it be and adjust for your environment.

    Kitty, I noticed that you used a lot more media rock that I have. I only have enough rock to just cover the longest roots. Most of the roots are at surface level. If I notice that it isn't working then it will go back in a basket. I only put it in a pot because my weather is also hot and humid.

    Kitty, I also forgot to mention that I received the plant last week. So the wrinkles are from the growers condition. This is all trial and error with this type of Orchid. I'm hopping that it's a successful purchase.
