    Default Vanda lamellata

    Possibly, but I'm not sure, var. Remediosae. A native of southern Philippines and some part of Borneo, this is one of the smallest vandas I have ever seen.
    I wish I have a better camera .

    Here is a close up of the blooms. I wanted to see the shape of the flower too. I am not sure if this is the same color as yours, Tanya. Anyway, here it is!




    Cheers!

    Thanks for the close up pic BD. As for the size of the flowers, its less than 2 inches wide and the petals are about less than half an inch in width. The white colour will become light yellow after few days. A friend of mine said that its fragrant, but I don't remember if mine is, I didn't detected any scent when I sniffed at it this morning. Maybe its the wrong time of day .

    Well, I gave up waiting for these flowers to become fragrant. It turned out that its not V.lamellata var. remediosae after all . It is var. boxalii. But I don't care, the Sharry Baby is more than enough to stink up the roof .

    Below are the updated pics of my lamellata var. boxalii and the pic of var. remediosae that I found from the internet. The better close up is the one from the internet of course .
