    Default Vanda scandens

    Endemic to the Philippines. Just from the flower morphology, I suspect it is most closely related to Vanda lamellata. Light fragrance of lemon-gardenia, very pleasant.
    Flowers very shiny and unruly, lol...Scandens, meaning "climbing".

    Quite charming, it has a rather energetic look about it.

    Default Thank you, ladies.

    Last year all the but one bloom on the spike were blasted, so I transferred it about 10 feet away from the fan, instead of about only 3 feet away. I was rewarded with two spikes and these blooms.
