|Hello all! Hope you're doing great!
So I received this Vanda and seller broke about 30-40 percent of the roots when puting her in plastic wraping… What do you guys think will it survive? Also it has some bare stem and I can see some root eyes on the stem. Also she has about 30 root tips in brachings from main roots.
Any help will be appreciated!

I think your Vanda will be just fine.
It has lost its lower leaves because it probably got too cold. They like to be above 55F. So think about where you can keep it during your zone 5B winters. They need to be watered everyday and need almost full sun to bloom as beautifully as it is now.
Weekly half strength fertilizer or hang small bags of time release pellets above .
Best of luck and happy growing!

When it's warm, lots of water, sun and fertilizer.
When it's cold you just have to do the best that you can.
