Very hard to predict, in part since we do not know the size of this seedling.

Are you growing in natural light (house or greenhouse), or under artificial lights? At your northern latitude, you have plenty of light in summer, but not much in winter. If you grow under artificial lights, I would suggest extending the number of hours to make up for the lesser intensity.

Most importantly, do not let the plant go dry. I grow young Vandas in net pots (eventually graduating into octagonal Vanda baskets), with a spaghnum/bark mix to hold moisture around the roots.

I bought this Vanda hybrid in 2019.

Just for reference, it was very small when I first got it and it is still very small lol.

Hello! Thank You all for your replies! As I heard from seller Gordon Dillon x Wirat should bloom pretty early.
Shadeflower your seedling looks very nice and healthy! Keep us updated!
This is the photo of my seedling. It now has 8 leaves and pretty long roots.

Seedlings that size took three years to bloom for me, grown indoors with no supplemental lighting.

Those blooms are outstanding, Kim. It definitely shows a strong Gordon Dillon influence.
