It's actually an Ascocenda but I'm just curious if anyone else has had their Vanda types have all the roots grow up, rather than down? Plenty of light, water, and nutrients so what is up with this?? I've had this plant about 8 months. Am I in some type of space-time anomaly where gravity doesn't exist?

Think "mechanics". The plant is trying to get a firm anchor on its substrate, so will send roots in all directions.
