If full sun is too much and burns the leaves you might try hanging it in a palm tree. The sunlight will still be strong, but they get a break from the hottest daytime sun. The sun here in Florida is so hot even in the winter I have to wear a hat to garden. Since I have hung a few of my larger vandas in a palm tree I have seen a huge improvement both in leaf growth and root development.
Thanks once more, CJCorner. I don't have a palm at my dispose, close enough to me at least, but I put the Aranda Prapin under the leaves of my ginger plant, that should do the same. The attached photo shows the current location.
Each day I intend to move it a little bit more towards the sun. I want to take a few days to make it used for the full sun shine. It grew under these grower's meshes, so far as I know.
Would it be in the right size to bloom soon, if I meet its blooming conditions?
