Default Vanda tricolor

One of the few vanda species I can grow here that doesn't seem to mind the cool winter temperatures in my sunroom. I like the spots, and the fragrance is excellent also.

oh you mention the fragrance.
I just discovered this one recently. I need to do more research.
So nice colors, cool grower and fragrant. Sounds like a good orchid.

I bought a tiny seedling from Hausermann's. I've been putting the tiny ones into plastic pots with LECA, and watering frequently. If the roots are long enough I may put it into S/H.

One of the most cold-tolerant of the Vanda species (not counting V. falcata which I still call Neofinetia)... it does just fine on my patio, so puts up with winter temps of 40 deg F/4 deg C or even occasionally cooler. Would it do better a bit warmer? Definitely. (People who grow in a relatively cool GH do better with it) But it's a survivor. And yes, fragrant!

I was really tempted to get a v. merrillii this week which apparently grows next to it and stays smaller but even the size of the merrilllii put me off unfortunately

Thank you, everyone, for your comments.

Shadeflower, Vanda merrillii is definitely a warm-grower and nowhere near as tolerant of cool (or even intermediate, in my experience) temperatures as V. tricolor. I finally traded mine after struggling with it during the winter months (it survived just fine as long as I kept it in a warm and brightly lit room, but the humidity was not ideal). And it's a very large vanda when it reaches maturity. The lacquerware-looking flowers, although lasting only a couple of weeks, are, however, incredibly fragrant and (in my opinion) put Vanda tricolor's fragrance to shame. If you get a chance to acquire one, and you can give it the space and year-round warmth that it needs, I don't think you would be disappointed with it.
