One of the most recognizable and popular species of orchids, this vanda blooms with luscious ease. A single planting can yield blooms that last for up to three months, and if cared for properly, may bloom more than once in a year.
- Climate and Environment V. Pure's Wax thrives in warm climates, with daytime temperatures between 80 and 95 degrees and nighttime temperatures no lower than 55 degree. Ideal humidity levels are between 50-70%. This plant does require an ample amount of light, however direct sunlight will burn its leaves. For best results, hang V. Pure's Wax high in a greenhouse or on a loose canopy, non-deciduous tree. For northern climates, a greenhouse solarium or other similar structure is required.
- V. Pure's Wax Care Water your orchid every bright morning, taking care to thoroughly water the entire plant until it's roots are green. Rain or tap water is appropriate; however, avoid using water that has been "softened".
