    Hi I hope these photos work. What is happening to this Vanda. Top was removed 12 months ago and repotted. This remaining parent has all these new shoots, what are they? {By the way, this orchid I have had for 3 years, has never flowered}.
    What do I do.

    I would not worry. I would have worried if after cutting the top it would have slowly declined... I think the only thing you can do is go buy a gallon pump sprayer if you do not have one already... So many nice roots. maybe you will have to buy a stronger hanger and in a few years.

    a semi teret vanda you have, it would be best to grow it on a sunny spot in your garden,these type of vandas will flower profusely when grown in full sun and diligent watering.
    You should congratulate yourself having had those keikis growing, it means you have lots of vandas flowering soon.

    Those are baby vanda plants growing for you. I have a big one that is carrying about four keikeis. Eventually they will grow roots of their own and you can either leave them or cut them off when they get large enough. I've seen some massive Vanda's with lots of keikeis and when they all bloom it's quite impressive. Then again it can be a huge mess too...

    I would leave them together if you have the room. They look great...

    if you get too many keikis, once they develop good roots, you could maybe detach some and share them with your friends.

    Many thanks, friends. You have all made me happy with comments. I can't wait to get some flowers off the plant, now I know how to care for it. Have a great day.
