Vanda with weak root system
2 Attachment(s)
I purchased this Vanda in a glass vase which was in a box and store didinít allow me to remove it to see the roots. This is what this Vanda is left with.
I purchased it with huge discount but would really love to have it!
What can I do to help her? And does it even has a chance to survive?

Thank You all in advance!

Some of those roots actually look decent - maybe not wonderful, but adequate to support the plant. Your challenge will be to keep it moist enough. The vase idea can be used quite successfully...Fill the vase with water for a short time to let the roots absorb water, then pour the water out. The vase will provide a humid environment with air (which is what they want) It also admits light - roots can photosynthesize.

There is a "sticky" at the top of this Vanda forum, on the subject. Vandas in Glass Vases

The plant looks very healthy... if the roots get an environment that they like, you will soon have plenty more.
