Vanda tricolor var. suavis ‘alba’: A Rare and Exotic Orchid

The Vanda tricolor var. suavis ‘alba’ is a rare and exotic orchid, a variant of the Vanda tricolor var. suavis, known for its unique beauty and intoxicating fragrance. Appreciated by experienced collectors, this orchid requires specific care to bloom and reveal its elegance.

Originating from the tropical forests of Java and Bali, this epiphytic orchid stands out for its unique beauty and gentle, pleasant aroma.


  • Medium size: Mature plants typically reach between 20 and 60 cm in height, including the floral spike. Ideal for growing in hanging pots or on shelves.
  • Fragrant flowers: Blooms in spring, producing several flowers per spike. The highlight is the intoxicating fragrance.
  • White flowers with yellow spots: Unlike the typical Vanda tricolor var. suavis, the ‘alba’ variant features predominantly white flowers with yellow spots or speckles on the fused petals and sepals.
  • Thin and Elongated Foliage: Green, fine leaves complement the plant’s delicate appearance.

Essential Care:

  • Bright, diffused light: Avoid direct sunlight exposure. Prefers filtered sunlight throughout the day.
  • Moderate to Warm Temperature: Wide temperature range from mild (18°C) to warm (29°C). Prefers temperature variations between day and night.
  • High humidity: Ideal humidity ranges between 70% and 80%. Use humidifiers, vaporization trays, or group plants to increase humidity.
  • Use humidifiers, vaporization trays, or group plants to increase humidity. Allow the top of the substrate to dry slightly between waterings. Never overwater the plant.
  • Fertilization: During the growing season (spring and summer), use a specific orchid fertilizer diluted every two or three weeks.
  • Airy Substrate: Choose a pot with effective drainage and use a well-aerated substrate that retains moisture, such as small pine bark, charcoal, or a specific mix for epiphytic orchids.

Tips for Collectors:

  • The Vanda tricolor var. suavis ‘alba’ is a challenging orchid to grow, requiring meticulous care and an ideal environment to thrive.
