    Hi Chu...I think that you take excellent pictures! Plus, you bloom some of the most unusual species I've ever seen. Thank you sooooooooooooo much for showing us your beautiful orchid plants. Betty in Texas :-)

    Both are V. cristata. It is variable in terms of color on the lip.

    V. cristata has horns at the tip of the lip and V. alpina doesn't have those two horns.
