    Question Can anyone identify this large orchid plant?

    I've had this orchid for several years now, but it has never bloomed and I don't even know what kind of orchid it is (Aerides?). It is rather large as the largest leaf measures 16 x 2 inches and comes from the forest of Southern Thailand. I'm very curious and wonder what will induce flowering
    besides fertilizer, so a definite identification would be possible. Thanks.

    Michael base on the structure of the plant I do believe this is Vandopsis species which is native to South East Asia. Could be gigantea or parishii, most of them have very beautiful flowers and lasting.
