    i have also one, just wandering if care treatment for this variety is the same with vandas?
    because i placed mine on an area where it will not get direct sunlight, just a foot away from where my vandas which are enjoying all the sun it can get. so that i can relocate my ascocentrum if it needs also full sunlight

    Thanks Guys... glad you liked it. I have another one in bloom but im going to give it to
    my boss' wife.

    Boy, care for this is exactly like Vandas, lots of light short of burning their leaves, lots of
    water and lots of humidity.
