    Default Vandirea Newberry Jasmine

    This is a primary hybrid. The parents are Vanda amesiana - which if I had it, I would expect to grow like my other vandas, perhaps in coarse bark or maybe with a little added sphagnum, but not much.
    The other parent is Sedirea japonica, which I have, and grow like Neofinetias - in pure sphagnum moss, piled high. It loves it, and gets bigger every year.

    The point here is that one parent likes to be moist/damp, and the other likes to alternate between wet and very dry.

    Where does this hybrid fit in ? Does anyone grow it ?

    My plant has survived for two or three years but is not exactly bursting with health and vigorous growth - and has been in the straight moss end of the spectrum.
    maybe I should go for a mix, as I might use for odonts, or pure Perlite ...
    Suggestions ?
    Advice based on actual experience ?
    Anyone ?

    I don't own one, but it is on my wish list, and I have looked at it online. The info I saw said that the grower grew them in "phalenopsis conditions."

    Hi Kathi - yes, those conditions would be right- call them cattleya, Vanda, Aerides, etc - warmish side of Intermediate - in the old English orchid system of cool/intermediate warm , referring to winter minimum night temperatures of 50, 55, 60 F. or say 10, 12.5 and 15 C. Actually I grow at a nominal 17 C minimum, but it is always warmer hifger ( heat rises) and cooler next to the glass, despite fans.

    But it is compost I was thinking about.

    BTW you know where to go for one I suppose ? I must not mention nursery names I think - but the one you want actually uses Newberry as a name frequently in its hybrids, also Mendenhall....and since its in USA - you won't need all those tiresome forms which I have to get in order to buy from them.

    Oh, sorry...I can't help there, although I would probably assume a phal like mix. Yes, I do know where to get it. My problem is just prioritizing things on my list!!!!

    I know a friend who grows this plant mounted, and waters it everyday, it flowers for him every March (he is not willing to share a Keiki with me ). I know its not possible for you to water everyday, but I would rather hint at growing it like Vandas and not like Sedria or Neo. Just my thoughts.
