    Default Vandopsis lissochiliodes, Philippine Orchids

    Another blooming orchid in the Philippines.

    We called this plant "Rock Orchid" because they loved crushed claypots as their growing media.

    Derek, this is beautiful... any tips on how to bloom this baby? Mine is not showing any signs
    of flowering.... I grow it in full sun and potted with large charcoal as media, the only thing
    it does at the moment is make new growths, i think it has around 4 new babies now. I
    know its flowering size already because it already has a spent spike when i got it last year.

    Be patient. Your media is alright but it needs half a meter of its plant size to bear many spikes at one time. Because your plant is newly gathered, it sets back and you need to increase its growth by applying organic fertilizer. Do as what Vanda flowering requirements. But for our plant, they are planted in the ground, natural growth and it takes 2 years to bloom.

    That's beautiful. It's most probably the most colourful of the vandopsis. Yes vandopsis do tend to be rather big.
