Mericlones are orchids propagated with tissue culture, so are true to type. Vanda Orchids are of show winning quality and are well loved in Orchidist circles. They are the subject of intensive breeding, that seeks out more vibrant colours and showier forms.

Vanda Orchids grow from a single stem (monopodial) and the roots stretch out from the base of this stem. These aerial roots that will roam free of the containers and can grow up to 2m long.

Plants will take 2-4 years to flower depending on conditions they are grown in. Given the correct growing conditions, Vanda orchids can, of course, flower any time of the year, but usually bloom cyclically every few months for up to 4 to 8 weeks at a time

Watering

Because of their aerial roots and growing conditions, they need a lot of water. Take care not to damage the roots. Water Vanda Orchids well throughout the growing season, allow them to become relatively dry over winter. The plants have a clever trick to let you know when to water; when they are white they are thirsty, when they are green, they have enough water. It is best to water the in the morning as they don't like it cold and wet.
