Vanda rothschildiana 3" NOT IN SPIKE?BLOOM
(sanderiana alba X coerulea alba)
This hybrid was registered in 1931 by Chassaing in France. This is a remake using the alba parents shown to the right. I DO NOT expect alba (white) offspring, but the progeny will carry genes for the alba trait.
Pot size: 3"
Plant size: about 6" leafspan; w/3-4 sets of leaves.
Estimated time to bloom: 4-5 years depending on your care and conditions.
Flower size: 4-4.5"
Temperature: prefers warm nights (65 degrees)
Light: Bright indirect
Water:while it is small, do not let the plant become thoroughly dried out. When it is larger water and fertilize regularly.
NOTE: While Vanda Rothschildiana can tolerate condition that are less than optimum, maturation to a flowering size may be delayed as a result.
