Vandopsis gigantea *Rare Species*

SKU:9471/30

Be the first to review this product First to review this product

Vandopsis gigantea also known as the 'Giant Vanda', is native to regions of southeast Asia.  Plants mature to large proportions, usually two feet tall, with foliage having a natural spread of two feet across.  The strap like leaves are thick, and tightly held to the main stem. Blooms are pale golden-rod yellow with darker brown-red markings across the petals. Flower spikes are somewhat pendant, mostly due to the weight of the blooms which can appear up to a dozen per stem on mature specimens. Blooming season is late winter into early spring, and flowers can last for weeks on the plant under proper conditions.


This collectors plant is best for greenhouse, and outdoor growing conditions. Plants are very warm growing and are touchy about cold weather.  We suggest growing Vandopsis gigantea in 65-85 degrees, and plants can tolerate warmer weather is given proper humidity and water.   Plants are epiphytic and must be grown in well draining media.  Large baskets or similar containers filled with course tree fern, cork or other large grade media is the best choice for maturing and mature plants. Only repot in the springtime when new growth and roots are appearing, and do not disturb anymore than necessary. As with most members of the Vanda alliance, high humidity is a plus, and plants should be kept well watered except in the middle of cooler, winter weather. Regular balanced fertilizer is suggested. Mature plants of Vandopsis gigantea will need bright to very bright light in order to grow and flower well.  Seedlings need less until they are larger, and should gradually be acclimated to bright conditions. 


  Plants of this rare species are slow to start but gain momentum as they age.  We are offering seedling sized plants in 3" pots. Plants will need a few years to reach flowering size but will be worth the wait!  Supplies are very limited and for that reason pricing is net, meaning no further discounts or promo codes will apply.  These will disappear fast, so don't delay!
