    ...and so you can compare the size of flowers. The vietnamica flowers may be smaller, but they are so cute.

    Lovely - the white lip is very striking against the yellow- green of the rest of the flower.

    No, this one has bloomed 3 or 4 times now. I usually get at least 2 spikes, this time it's 3.

    I think you will enjoy this little one. It can take more sun than some of my strap leaf vanda's. They are very hardy and rewarding to grow. I can't wait to see pic's of yours in bloom.
