Q.Vanda Coerulea Alba Lose Of Leaves

Zone Reedley Ca. 93654 | Anonymous added on June 3, 2021 | Answered

Hi my name is Patrick and I have collection of 10 vandas all grown in my bathroom with t 5 h.o. Light and humidifier. Almost all have bloomed two are to young. I bought this vanda Coerulea Alba August of last year and it was in bad shape at the roots and crown. The crown top of the plant lost its leaves either from crown rot or they cut the top ? I don’t know and don’t know what are the little pyramid things growing out of the top. I thought they were going to bloom but they haven’t done anything. What is happening at the top? And what can be done to get it to grow and flower? Can the plant be divided? Thank you for your time

I only see one stem so I don't see how it could be divided. Those look like growing tips at the top, probably for new leaves or more aerial roots. They need regular fertilization, water, and 80 percent humidity. Provide those and it should bloom off and on all year.
