The yellow problem. My vanda is dying :(

uploadfromtaptalk1399809329769.jpg

hi im jam from philippines.

i took this little vanda here from its mother and tied it using a stocking. I initially placed it in an open area with a temperature of 36 C and water it daily once or twice when it gets super hot. As soon as it turned yellow, i placed it under a tree to shade it from the sun. please help before my vanda dies. its my first time growing an orchid .. thanks!

Hi Jam - did you put it in direct sunlight before you placed it under the tree? What media are you using (bark, soil, spaghnum, moss, etc.). Could you maybe have overwatered or underwatered? How do the roots look?

Sorry about all the questions, but there are so many factors and things that could be wrong with it, so we need more information to be able to help you with this.

To me, it sounds like it may have been scorched by the sun - orchids don't do well with direct sunlight, as it burns the leaves. Also, it may have been overheated, and maybe even overwatered (water it only when the medium dries out).

I am not using any medium. all i did was to tie it on this trunk. the roots are white but turns green when watered. And Yes it was initially in a direct sunlight for over 2 weeks together with my dendrobiums.

And thank u, i think it was really scorched by the sun. do u have any suggestion? should i pot it instead of mounting? because water dries faster if mounted.

thanks, i saw ur reply in my other thread.

I think you can keep it mounted - it sounds like the roots are healthy, so there's no reason to change it. As for the scorching, there's really nothing you can do but wait for the Vanda to grow new leaves - I would put it in a location where it only gets direct sunlight briefly as the sun rises (east) or the sun sets (west) so it's not in direct sunlight during the "skin cancer hours", but still gets plenty of light during the day.

Thanks for ur replies. Today i untied my orchid to check its root. isnt this a root? If yes, then it's rotting right? :'( i didnt know the root turned out to be like this because the rotten part was hidden from the stocking all this time. is there a way to save it?

Hello Jam, I would suggest continue to put it in an area in your garden with some shade for now, and allow the plant to recover from the sun scorching. I think there is still a chance for it to recover.

Philippine weather is good for the plant. I know because I have seen them thrive there very well with all the humidity we have. But since your plant is still young, give it time to recover. Hopefully it will send new roots soon. Just keep misting the leaves to help it for now, step up the misting/watering..our temps there are really extreme, so the plant may be reacting to the extreme temps. Maybe for now find a spot where it can get morning sun, then some shade in the hottest time of the day.

It is May now, so thundershowers will be coming there, that plant will love that too.

ONE ROOT !!!! Oh, you are going to have problems.

Vandas need a lot of moisture to survive.

Maybe put some rooting hormone onto it and pray that it produces more roots, but, don't hold your breath......

One lesson learned perhaps? Do not remove keiki from mother plant until it falls off and/or the baby has many more roots. I know that people like neat, single Vanda fan plants. But for me having one plant with all of its keiki intact creates a multi-fan specimen resulting in many blooms.

Hi Jam,

Has your Vanda put out new roots? Some plants can be tough little survivors, so I'm wondering if yours has made it through its sunburn.
