Default How deep to plant Vanda

I have Vanda that has 20 cm bare stem from roots to leaves, how deep I could plant the stem? Can I plant it up to the leaves?

Thank You!

No, as that would likely induce stem rot.

A picture would help. Ive had the best luck growing Vandas bare root: not potted. Youd probably have the best luck setting it up so the roots can hang free.

Check out this "sticky" on the Vanda forum Vandas in Glass Vases for some good ideas about growing these bare-root in vases. If you do pot, use large bark, just to cover the roots. But mostly, Vandas really do not take well to potting - they like their roots exposed to the breezes. Lots of humidity, lots of air.
