The Blue Vanda is native to Northeast India, Myanmar, Thailand and south-west China. For the first time, plants were discovered on the Khasi hills in north-east India, and then found in the mountainous areas of Burma and northern Thailand. They usually grow high on the rough bark of little-leafed trees, therefore they are exposed to full sun, rain and wind. Their roots grow on a dry, rough bark deprived of mosses and lichens and therefore they dry out very quickly. The most common are at heights of 910-1520 m, but in Thailand grown plants grow well in natural conditions in Chiang Mai at an altitude of 340 m.
