    Question Vanda - Yellow Leaves

    My vanda's lower leaves are turning yellow - I've searched everywhere but can't find anything on this topic. Please, what am I doing wrong and how do I correct it?

    Is it too much water? Too much fertilizer (I feed at 1/2 strength everytime I water)? Too much space (its in a big room but the same pot I brought it home in)?

    Any assistance would be appreciated.
