Vanda Orchid Care: A Guide from the American Orchid Society

Vanda orchid

Vanda orchids are a genus of over 60 species of orchids native to tropical and subtropical regions of Asia, Australia, and the Pacific Islands. They are prized for their beautiful flowers, which come in a wide variety of colors and shapes. If you are thinking about adding a Vanda orchid to your home, or if you already have one and you are not sure how to care for it, this guide is for you.


Vanda orchids should be watered thoroughly, but not too often. Allow the potting mix to dry out completely between waterings. You can water your Vanda orchid by immersing the entire pot in water for 10-15 minutes, or by misting the leaves and roots with water.



Vanda orchids should be fertilized every two weeks during the growing season with a balanced fertilizer. Reduce fertilizing to once a month during the winter months.



Vanda orchids should be repotted every two to three years, or when the potting mix breaks down. Use a fresh potting mix that is designed for orchids.


Pests and Diseases:

Vanda orchids are susceptible to a number of pests and diseases, including mealybugs, scale, and root rot. If you notice any pests or diseases, treat them immediately with an appropriate pesticide or fungicide.



If your Vanda orchid is not blooming, it may be because it is not getting enough light. Move the plant to a brighter spot, and it should start to bloom again. If the leaves of your Vanda orchid are turning yellow, it may be because the plant is getting too much water. Reduce watering, and the leaves should turn green again.



Vanda orchids are beautiful and easy-to-care-for plants. With a little bit of care, you can enjoy your Vanda orchid for many years to come.
