    Lewisara is made up of 4 species...Vanda, Ascocenda, Arachnis and Aerides...I would say it would get vanda like treatment

    According to the Wikipedia

    Wikipedia is correct, it's Ascocentrum.

    Stefan, the name should be "Fatimah Alsagoff".

    Interestingly there are only 14 registered hybrids of this genus.
