That was me, it wasn't when Triffid asked. She had also asked on a different thread for this one to be stuck and I think I commented there rather than here. Sorry for the confusion.

i have had my vanda since february... it was entirely in a vase at first but it got tiny spots of sunburn, so i lifted it above the vase, cleaned the roots (very little algea and rot), so that the roots are now still in there. i give some water every other day and soak it with fertilizer for half an hour at least once a week. since then it has put on a bunch of new roots, some are almost as thick as my fingers, and a few new leaves (no spikes though)... seems happy

i am happy to say its back in spike, in fact in flower now, so hopefully with a bit of luck it will spike again before christmas!

I didn't think so from when I've had this technique explained to me. I don't grow this way though so can't be certain.

I was told you poor water in and let the roots soak it up for a couple of minutes then poor it all out again.

Did you buy from him, and get the same results??
That's odd, because I purchased about 14 Vanda seedlings from him and received them within a week. He even tossed in a two freebies (oncidium seedlings) and all the seedlings are very happy... I soaked them in the solution he recommended on his site and they are doing very very well. So I'm surprised about the negative feed back.

I've been wanting to buy a vanda but was scared to pieces about killing the poor thing being how Colorado has very little humidity. I visited an orchid farm out in Louisville (Fantastic btw) and was amazed and in love with the many Vanda they have growing from the rafters, planters, and off the wall. I bought a Neostylis Lou Sneary to see how well I would do. After a month it's doing fantastic. So, I purchased quite a few vanda from Bill Asia, only I bought them from his actual website, not Ebay. A week later I received my shipment and yes the poor babies were a bit weak but this is because they've been in the mail from Miami to toasty Colorado for a few days... bare root.

Now I have them arranged around a mini fountain I have and they are all doing very well, however because it's dryer than toast here, I want to try the vase method. All of my plants are seedlings so it'll be another while before they actually start to spike. Does anyone from Colorado have any suggestions? I'm tempted to do this very method w/some of my phals that I rescued from L***S as.

I am very happy I stumbled across this forum and particularly this discussion as I don't wanna dry out and kill my seedlings. The Neostylis has already spiked and bloomed, so I'm excited for my lil NOOBs to get there too.
