Q.What Could Be Chewing Vanda Orchid Blooms And Buds Off At Their Stems?
A really large vanda orchid had 2 large spikes for the first time in 4 years. The buds were just beginning to open yesterday. I went out this morning to take pictures only to find all the buds and opened flowers on the ground. It appears they have been chewed off. I don”t see anything but was hoping for some insight to this dilemma!

Rather than something having eaten the blooms, it sounds like they may have aborted. This can happen for several reasons.
