    Very pretty, Mietek. I believe that this is not very commonly seen in collections. Thanks for posting.

    Nice species, love the blooms, is it the same as Ascocentrum himalaicum?

    Amey, total different habitus. Here typical of Ascocentrum, like a small Vanda. Asc. himalaicum habitus looks like an Holcoglossum wangii. Long, pending terete leaves.

    I wondered if it was a common orchid. Very unique!
