    The miniatum shown is the one normally sold as miniatum from Thailand and should be correctly named garayi. However many crosses have been made with this particular ascocentrum and registered as Asco miniatum.

    Oh my! With all these aurantiacum, miniatum and now garayi - and all of them looking so alike - it's really getting to be confusing!

    I am new here, also from the Philippines and i am awed at the knowledge you have for orchid classification, as i love orchids but know only the major Genus. I have been following delphiguy and walingwaling mostly. Hello guys.

    haha, i just entered now so i instinctively followed what my countrymen have been posting. Besides i thought walingwaling from Tacloban City is probably my lady orchid-breeder friend. Unfortunately, i found out he is a guy - Ron. Don't worry i am just feeling myself around yet, started reading your posts and eventually will branch out to others. I just came in because of the Zygopetalum i posted in my blogsite, but dont know the species, much more the cultivar. thanks.

    With regards to the similarities of these species, just observed and examine their flower structures and you'll surely easily identify. And that's what I'm doing if I have new plants bought...
