Cutting a Vanda

Sometimes plants needs to be reduced in length. This one have had some fungus on it's mid leaves.
Before cutting make sure to water the roots carefully.
Sterilize the secateurs withe a flame.
Select a place to cut, make sure that you have at least three good roots on the top cutting.

Check the cutting surface to see if it is clear. The color should be green to yellow without any black or brown markings.
Use some kind of grafting wax to seal the cut.
Grafting wax is in place.
Anchor the top cutting well.
The lower half of the plant usually sets new plants when its cut.
Now you have two plants. :-)
