    Thanks Tami and ron!
    ron,ampullaceum from China have red-orange flower.Those from Thailand have amaranth(or?) flower. This one is a larger plant,having larger and redder flowers.

    Nice blooming, san.

    It is Ascocentrum ampullaceum var. aurantiacum. Mine is spiking now and I hope it will bloom as nicely as yours in a month or so.

    I concur with Tom19951. Most of the ampullaceum I have seen are red-purple in colour. san, yours seem to be of good form and size. Congrats for an uncommon beauty.

    Thanks to everyone!
    Looking forward to see the nice blooming of Tom's Ascocentrum ampullaceum var. aurantiacum!
    @ Randy, It has three large spikes and four small spikes. If I had given it more fertilizer it would be even better.
