Vanda coerulescens- 365 days of orchids – day 842

One of the smaller species on our London display was this miniature Vanda species with a striking purple lip.


Vanda coerulescens is native to dryish monsoon forests in the Western Himalayas (Arunachal Pradesh), Myanmar, Thailand and Southern China from around 300 to 1200m. The habitat we have seen in Arunachal Pradesh is open forest with a distinct wet season in the monsoon summer.

We grow the species high in Warm Asia where it gets plenty of light and dries out quickly between waterings.
