    Default Vanda species or Hybrid ?

    The vendor told me that this is vanda sumatrana, he got it this plant a couple of years ago but to my observation it's not cause the flower is very big almost about 3 inches and the leaves relatively small. For your info sumatrana surprisingly has a smaller flower as compared to this one. Just have a look the floral structure the perfume is awesome especially early in the morning.
