Nice vanda !. Take a picture of the flowers, so that we might see what it could be.

Vandas usually need quite a lot of light to flower. From your picture, it looks like a shady position. How much direct sun do you get and from which hours?
I usually keep vandas without pots and media, and let their roots hang freely trailing down a basket. Vandas has very thick roots and can soak up water very well very quickly. If you keep them in pots with media, you must make sure the media and roots don't get soak in water over long period, and dry out daily, otherwise the roots will rot easily. Otherwise you can consider removing the pots and medias, and let vanda roots trail down the grills supporting it. But then you will probably have to tie the plant to a support for anchorage.

My corridor usually gets direct sunlight from 2.30pm-5pm.

Theres another spot which theres direct sunlight from 1pm- 6pm. Should I shift it to that spot?
Its potted in charcoal and I water it daily and my area is very windy so it dries up pretty quickly. Watering it daily shouldn't be a problem right? :o/>

Your vanda looks like it has some Vanda jvb blood in it.
Very nice plant, with lots of old flowering spikes, which means it will flower very often. And I spotted a keiki.

The more sun, the better, so the 1-6pm position is better. If you are confident the pot and media will dry out quickly, then go ahead and water it everyday, only on the roots.
