    I can't help with the name either...just wanted to say how pretty those flowers are. I've looked at a few aerides online, are they similar in their growing needs to vanda?

    Hmmmm ..... I've never seen a Philippine aerides species that looks like this before. I have a strange feeling that this might be a hybrid of some sort.

    The purplish color of the flowers give me a hint that it has some Aerides leaana (jarckianum) bloodline in it but the size are way too big to be it.

    I second it, I have never seen anything like this one before, a combination of my crispum and odoratum might look like this. The also has some features of Rhynchostylis. May be a natural hybrid.

    Yes, might be a hybrid. The petal and sepal behavior calls to mind a Rhynchostylis, and the labellum lateral lobes are too large and prominent for an Aerides. Zainal, could you tell me exactly from which grower in the Philippines did you acquire this?

    I also think that it is a hybrid most probably Aer lawrenciae and Rhy gigantea ?

    Wally my friend couldn't recall cause more than 5 years apparently it's come in bundle he cant remember exactly from which grower.
    Personally I think it's not species the character of the plant and flower totally different.
    Jojo thank you for giving me some tip,
    Amey and Yew I agree with you it's has Rhynchostylis blood.
    Thanks again for your quick response and comments.Zain
