Our wood vanda baskets are traditional baskets that Vandas are grown in. In humid climates these orchids like to weave their bare roots through the basket and drape out the sides and down. In less humid conditions large coconut husk chips or large chunks of fir bark are used to anchor the orchid in the basket providing extra moisture retention. These chunks are too large to fit through the slats.

A variety of orchids and other plants can be grown in vanda baskets, not just vandas. Baskets can be used instead of pots with coconut husk fiber wedged in between the slats to hold in the orchid mix. Vanda baskets work well sitting on the growing area just like a pot or hung from the ceiling. Usually vandas are hung up due to their high light requirements and cascading roots. We have basket hangers available if required. Currently we are growing miniature cattleya in our cattleya blend and a clump of doritis pulcherrima in our phalaenopsis sphagnum blend in coconut husk fiber lined baskets on the bench in our greenhouse. The miniature oncidium at the top of this page is growing in a 4 inch basket filled with fiber and hung by a phal hook that is stuck into a wine bottle filled with sand for stability. We also like to use this sideways basket approach for those species phalaenopsis that just have to grow sideways instead of straight up and in so doing create a natural look while reducing the risk of crown rot.

Vanda baskets are a great way to vary the growing conditions and presentation of all orchids, just add some imagination and fun!

Testimonials

Yes! She is thrilled with the orchid mix and used it ALL the next day. She thinks it is excellent material and be sure we will be back with another order. She has been collecting orchids for 41 years and said it is the best mix she has ever seen.

The potting medium you sent is gorgeous!! It's superior to the bark I've been buying at Lowe's. I can't imagine what (my orchids) will do when I put them in your potting mix. It even smells fresh!! Many, many thanks. I'll be ordering from you again.

I repotted it in the Imperial Monterey Orchid Mix that I had on hand, with a sad bloom or two still trying to hang on. Since then, it began growing new roots and leaves. The spike even began to grow/elongate, adding new buds, and rewarded me with 7 new blooms, the size of your palm. A testament that your products work wonders.

I LOVE EVERYTHING I BOUGHT FROM YOU GUYS! I'm your customer for life! When I first got my orchid mix I couldn't believe how nice it was! I've never seen such nice moss! I have suggested you to everyone I know that grows orchids. Your products are fabulous.

I am relieved to have finally found an online retailer who actually reads and responds to customer inquiries in a timely manner...My first order from rePotme.com was placed, confirmed, assembled and shipped in less than 12 hours!!!!! Truly Amazing..

I received the potting mix and I have to say that it is wonderful!! I was skeptical to spend a little extra money for the bark mix when I can go to Lowe's and get it for a fraction of the price. But...your mix speaks for itself! So clean, nice and easy to work with. It's the best and I plan on buying for you all again and again. Thanks so much!!

Since I had such success with that mix and the Paph mix, I have converted some of my Phals to the Imperial Mix...they are showing the same results. Strong growth, good roots and spikes. Your mixes are always fresh and distinctive. I have found nothing on the market like them and recommend them to all my orchid friends. Not sure what you put in them but keep it up.
