    The smaller of the two. Plant is much smaller too. Sweetly fragrant throughout the day.

    Thank you, Yew. We are safe. We live in a typhoon-free zone of the Philippines. We have never experienced a full-blown typhoon in Cotabato in Central Mindanao. It is usually Luzon and Visayas Islands and eastern Mindanao that lie in the path of typhoons. I am moved to tears as I see on tv what happened yesterday to the city of Tacloban in Leyte. I hope Ron is ok because that is his locale.

    I think the first orchid is a Vanda JVB cross. The second one is interesting because of that oversized lip. And it is quite long-lasting too.

    Yes, the first one is a JVB cross and if it is very fragrant then it could be JVB x dearii (the original registered Tan Chay Yan)/ I have a suspicion the second could be a V Ruby Prince cross with that lip and shape.

    I miss the scent both are very beautiful these terete leaves very tolerant with high light I like the second one so elegant.

    Thanks for the info, Yew Sung. The first one is not really very fragrant but fragrant enough for me although you can't smell it unless you are close to the flowers.

    The second one actually has a stronger fragrance. I almost thought it had some papilionanthe in its ancestry given the lip and the short semi terete leaves.

    They do love the sunlight, Zainal. Both are mounted on a concrete fence facing the east. It was a bare space and so I decided to add some semi-teretes and arachnis to brighten up the space.
