A well grown plant can have many fragrant flower racemes typically flowering in Winter.

Ideal conditions are

  • medium to high light that is filtered, 
  • warm to hot locations
  • in a well drained mix that dries before it is watered again, or grown bare root in the air (basket)
  • Vandas like water and food when in active growth.

They can be grown on a mount.
