    Hi Cathy nice hybrids I'm in doubt the second parent unlikely insignis, could be others eg brunnea or liovillei.

    I've doubted the 2nd parent, as well Zain. I bought this from a large vanda facitlity in Florida at one of the orchid shows. I know her and called when it bloomed the first time. She still thinks it is insignis. I'm just not so sure.

    Insignis hybrid usually should have rounded or triangular shape especially their lip yours no sign at all well sometimes very difficult to say.

    All is good. I still like the flower and it has bloomed twice since I got it a few months ago.

    Great shots again Cathy! That is a lovely vanda and it seems to favour the brunnea side of the parentage.
