    Hey friends I am new here! I am looking to hang an orchid in a hanging basket but I am not sure what orchids can be hung this way. Can you let me know which orchids are suitable to be hung in a basket type hanger. If that makes since lol.

    Thank you for any help you can give me! I attached a photo of the hanging basket I am talking about.

    I don't know diddely about Vandas, but that's what I most often see in hanging baskets like that. Plants with fat wandering roots that like to be drenched but then dry out. But any answer to your question would be inexact without knowing a lot more about your conditions (humidity, temperature, light, etc)

    Welcome! What are your growing conditions? There are lot of options for basket growing. However the rest of you conditions are more important. Temperature range, light levels, humidity. Willingness to water more frequently keeps my basket growing very limited.

    What and how are you currently growing?

    Coelogyne rochussenii. They have long hanging inflorescences.

    Almost any orchid that can be grown in a pot can be grown in a hanging basket. It is especially useful for plants that have a pendant inflorescence that blooms down, plants that have an arching inflorescence, and plants that grow down. For plants that have the flowers around the base of the plant it can help to display them having them up in the air.
