I recently acquired 3 decent sized used Vandas. 2 were in the
standard slatted wooden boxes. they have air roots about a foot long.
draped with the roots is a mass of Spanish moss.


I've visited several vanda growers in Florida who don't use -any-
growing medium with their vandaceous plants. I use diatomite with
some, but let others grow bare-rooted--literally. They seem to do
fine.
