The Subject

VANDA is an epiphytic orchid with a monopodial growth habit that likes to live on the branches of trees. Some types manage to live as litophytes on rocky crags in sunny areas about 400 to 500 meters above sea level. In general these orchids have emerald-green flat or cylindrical leaves, and the fleshy, firm and aromatic flowers emerging from the upper stems tend to last for a considerable time. Their root system tends to extend broadly.
