Color crazy challenge – Another Purple Orchid

This is one of my Vandas. They grow on trees normally being epiphites or you could grow them  mounted on coconut coir and moss or on logs of wood and moss. They grow well in wooden baskets too.

They are fussy and need the right amount of light, shade, air and moisture. Over watering them could lead to root rot. They love slightly shady but airy spots and do well if you hang them on trees.

They bloom 2-3 times a year, the blooms last for a couple of months. They have aerial roots and you could propagate them from cuttings , making sure you cut right below the aerial root.

This plant was hung on a tree that had a branch coming into my apartment balcony. It has lovely thick foliage.
