Does anyone have any good information on vanda topping? What happens to the bottom
Portion? Does it ever produce new leaves? Will it ever produce a spike or is the only hope for the bottom a keiki? Thank you!

Welcome to the Orchid Board!

When Vanda tops are removed they must already have roots or they probably won't survive. It is uncommon for leafless topped lower stems of Vandas to produce a new shoot, even if they have leaves. Spikes come from portions of stem with leaves.

First, Welcome!

I'm not sure the system will let you post a photo until you have 5 posts, though I have seen some cases where it seems to be possible. But if not, you could include a link to another place on the Web (like Google Drive or Flickr). But a photo of the plant is vital to be able to give a reasonable opinion. Also, where do you live? Once can get away with things in south Florida that don't work so well for indoor or even greenhouse growing elsewhere.
