"A miniatum vs garayii. The two differ in A garayii having flowers with deep solid orange color and very elliptical petals and sepals as well as a straight lip, A miniatum on the other hand has clearer, more transparent orange flowers with more noticeable veining and the sepals and petals are much narrower and the lip is recurved." -  information provided by Jay Pfahl, author of the Internet Orchid Species Encyclopedia (IOSPE).

*Cultural and care information based on average Vanda care, use it as guide and should be adapted to suit your environment.

🌡 Temp: Intermediate-warm to hot (☀️23-33°C/🌑18-22°C)
💧 Water: Wet/Dry cycle Water when dry, requires full dryout
☁️Humidity: 40%+min
💡 Light: Bright indirect to Medium direct, SouthEast exposure. Suggest to avoid the brightest 2 hours of the day in summer, maximize direct light in winter or add supplementary light. Will need higher than average phalaenopsis light to induce flowering
🌰 Media:  Prefer bareroot, but can be potted in perlite mix or chunky mix. Prefer to dry out fully within 4-5 days or less. Faster 100% wet to 100% dry cycle is best. Grow like a standard Vanda.
🧪: Fertilize: When it's actively growing in vegetative stage - typically when a top leaf emerges and growing. We recommend MSU & Marphyll rotation in low dosage every other watering and allow water flushing in between.
