    They are not easy to indentify when not in flower bc both have scrambling twisting growth habit. But the flower shape and color and very easy to tell apart. Ren. imschootiana flower base color is brick, overlaid heavily with red. The petal is very small (the smallest in the genus; the only other specie come close in size is Ren. citrina.) and both the petals and lateral sepal have heavy small red spots in almost 98% of the clones.

    Ren. vietnamense has more yellowish base color and color is more in duller orange side. The petals are usually similar in size to the lateral sepal and its usually lacks/minimal spots. Also the basal sepals are much narrower especially where they join to the lip/coloum part and have more variation in size. Where Ren. imschootiana has very uniform shape and size and its narrow only in a small portion where it join the lip, and then sepal expend and ballon up exponentially.
