    Very unique-looking flowers for a Vanda. Actually it reminds me of Encyclia mariae. Because of that I also bought one about a month ago. I hope I will be able to make it happy.

    Interesting to compare to Enc. mariae, not a match that springs to mind. You could fit 5 - 7 flowers of this on the lip of mariae.
