    Love this blue and especially the tessellations. It is Ascocenda = Ascocentrum x Vanda.

    yes. it is ascocenda as explained by Yew. ASCDA Princess Mikasa is a very reliable bloomer for me too. I have both the pink and blue forms. I find them lot more forgiving than vandas during winter and summers when the humidity plummets.
