    I think this is self-pollinating ? Which is why it is not often seen - the flowers don’t last long enough.
    It seemsto be fairly common in Northern Thailand, often growing low down on scrubby trees and bushes, in a lot of shade - which is where I said,”hey, a white Vanda - why don’t I seeit on sale at my dealer” and was given that explanation.
    There is a technical word for this - self pollination - but at the moment I cannot bring it to mind.

    Maybe in the wild but not in our garden and I agree with you nearly 10 days than it's faded, thanks for the info .
