Saving vanda

Thank you for the reply. The temperatures are around 25-27 Celsius during the day and go as low as 17-18 degrees during the night. Lighting: I keep it in front of a eastern window in a bathroom. Humidity I believe itís at least 60%. I keep it in a perforated transparent plastic pot (made some more perforations with a nail) hanging on itís lower leaves. Some water always on the bottom of the pot and some microfiber to retain humidity. I even tried covering it with a bag during the day. I spray the inside of the pot and the base of the stem a couple times per day. Leaves still green but Iím beginning to see some wrinkling. Donít know what else to do to get it to root....I even followed the advice from someone here and placed some damp microfiber pieces on the lower leaves where they meet the stem...

Vandas grow incredibly slow. There's not much hope now that the leaves are wrinkling, especially when the plant has no more roots left.

I can tell you right now, one of the problems is that it did not receive enough light. The lighting you had for it was unsatisfactory for it to photosynthesize. When I say they like it bright, I mean, imagine using a bulb rated at 36 PAR and 2,600 lumens with a Kelvin temperature of about 6,000 K that can be used as a flood light for your garage and placing the light only 1 - 2 feet above the plant. That's how bright.
