    San, does the one with short leaves always have fewer flowers? The one I have now is the one with 14"+ long leaves. Thanks.

    Thanks friends for your kind words!
    Hi Tom, yes those long leaves plants usually are more strong ,their spikes will be thick and long,so have more and larger flowers, Those short leaves plants will have short ,thin spikes. So when we choose a good form of wangii,we'd better choose those long leave,multiple growths plants.
    As the plant posted here, it has big flowers,its lip is better than other forms(I think),and it has multiple growths.It is suitable to grow in a pot. So I hope it will become a unique wangii.

    Thanks for the reply, San. I don't see the short leaf type here often but I think I will add it to my collection if I find one.

    Hi Wonderlen,wangii is an easy going species. I just tied it on a piece of bark then covered some moss on its root. Water it every day and apply 100ppm of fertilizer every 3-5days.
    Canh,thanks for sharing your orchid pictures with us!
