    Spectacular ! This plant reminds me of another aerides found in India. It is called aerides ringens and it is very rare. The colour, flower shape and habit are all very similar.

    Hey Randy,

    Me too. I've got a clump of this growing on a piece of wood.

    Mine is growing vigorously with its roots padded with constantly moist black moss on a piece of hardwood which I hanged up on the ceiling. Medium to bright light.
