    Ah yes, that Vandopsis lissichiloides - I've seen a fabulous specimen plant of that way back in the early 90's owned by Dr. Saplala of U.P. in Los Banos, Laguna. It was planted in a huge pot in the center of his then existing orchid nursery. Boy was that a HUGE plant! It towered like a lampost in the middle almost 15-20 feet tall!!!! What astonished me was that plant had perfect growth ... growing vertically straight up without any curves or bends .... and the leaves were all complete and intact beginning at the base ... and I could see that particular clone was a very prolific and faithful bloomer sending double spikes (one at each side) containing no less than 10 - 15 blooms per spike and every leaf node showed evidence of a spent flower spike! Outstanding bloomer that particular variety I saw. Ever since then, I have never seen another Lissichiloides that was that tall and impressive.

    It made me wonder what the age of that plant must have been being no less 15 feet tall ....

    The 3rd photo of Euanthe looks like a back crossed between Euanthe sanderiana var. Alba, Euanthe sanderiana var. froeblingiana and Vandanthe (Vanda x Euanthe)

    I bet that the other photos of waling waling orchids are true type of Euanthe because the floral segments especially the petals and sepals are not overlapped. And I think that this one came from Puentespina farm in Malagos, Davao.

    I think the first photo is Vandopsis lissochiliodes, nice variety.

    Wish I could visit Davao someday...

    Thanks for those insights Derek. Nope, those Walingwalings aren't from the Puentespina farm. I forgot to note the name of that seller. The Puentespina display had dendrobiums on sale. My friend bought a lot of those.
    It would be a worthwhile trip to Davao for any vanda lover. Hope you could come...someday...

    Yes Jojo, expensive indeed. And I recall those phals had flowers that where on the large side. Quite different from the species phals that occur in Cotabato gardens. Oh well, some cows have all the luck!

    Thank you for that valuable piece of information Jim. Makes me proud to be from Southern Mindanao!
