    I am leaving in Kolkata, India, usually in a hot and humid climate. I am interested in Orchid growing just two years back, despite all efforts my Orchids are not flowering as it should be and they are not enough green or healthy. Recently I had purchased one vanda from a reputed nursery, this was very healthy and dark green. Usually I used to hang my Orchids in my east facing veranda, where they get sunlight for 2 to 3 hours. I fertilize with NPK fertilizer once in a week, and use one fungicide also once in a week. After two weeks, I found wrinkle and yellow tinge on vanda leaves.
    Pl advise.

    Manidip, welcome to the Forum.

    If the Vanda leaves are wrinkling it may not be getting enough water. It will need daily water and it will appreciate at least as much light as your Cattleya, preferably more.

    Your Cattleya looks very nice.

    Thanks Kelly for your valuable suggestion.
    I am watering it every day, but humidity is normally below 50% now. I guess, this also may be a reason for wrinkles.
