    Now I follow Matin's opinion. They are so similar but the lips are different.

    Okay; your vanda is amazing! Can I ask you what it is mounted on?? I thought I would ask someone in your part of the world as they seem to grow so well there; do they also grow on rocks? or just trees? Are there certain plants in the vanda alliance that would grow better on a rock? Thanks so much for sharing the pictures of your beautiful plant!

    Your plant is fantastic!

    What is the light intensity in your area? How often do you water? What do you feed it?

    @connie: most of my orchid i use strong-dry-wood as the mount.
    @Jojo: The light in my garden area not very good but I can change it.
    Regarding water, it really depend on alot of thing like weather, humility etc.. and it difficult to say. And you know your area and you will have felling when it need watering. Sometime I have to do it two time per day but some time even one week i do it one time.
    To feed them: for this season I'm not feed any thing for them except water. This season I have a lot of species flowering and if you spray any kind of fertilizer you will destroy it. I have about 40 species flowering now and other nearly 40 have spike or bub...I love this season.
