    Default Hybrid or specie of Ascocentrum?

    Hello guys,

    Could somebody please identify this orchid of mine, I get confused with structures. It look likes a trigeneric hybrid of Vanda lamellata, Renanthera philippinense and Ascocentrum miniatum.


    Thanks,

    DC

    The leaves are curved just like Ascocentrum and its lengths are similar to Vanda lamellata.
    I don't know about this plant, I bought this to a vendor (from Quezon province) who does not know also?
    I think this is imported, not indigenous to Philippines and it was cultured in laboratory (Manually cross-pollinated).

    LOL! You sound more and more like your bro. Ron Have you talked to him lately?

    I say at least half of it is species. Would that be same as 'natural hybrid'? (J/K)
