Vanda Yeo Geck Bee is one of the older vandas I’ve owned. I bought it as a seedling about oh, more than 7 years ago, I think? Today, standing two feet tall, it puts out an impressive show with double spikes of rich, magenta-spotted flowers. Me happy!
But this vanda hasn’t always been so generous. Up until recently, it did not flower much at all. A move to a brighter, sunnier spot (to the point where the sun singed a couple of leaves) fixed that. Who needs high P or K fertilisers? Just gotta find the light!
I’ve promptly repositioned it to another spot where it now sits happily under filtered light.
Vanda Yeo Geck Bee was previously named under the genus, Ascocenda. It is a hybrid between Vanda Ooi Boon Huat and Vanda Memoria Choo Laikeun. Grow under bright, filtered light, warm temperatures and water daily.
