    Great acquisitions Sriram. I just love that Lou Sneary - I think that with Neofinetia being reclassified as Vanda this would now be a Vandachostylis ? ( Big headache with this reclassification thing, more so since Vandachostylis has replaced what was once Rhynchovanda ) .

    Superb choices, Sriram. That Trichoglottis philippensis is a favorite of mine, though I can't find one in the Philippines, how ironic.

    Concur with you Yew sung. I am conversant with the names that I first knew the species. changing the taxa would take time to adjust and even more if they keep changing it. I am sure down the line they will again split Neofinetia from vanda and call it a new name.

    Thank you Angel. Sad that native species are not available to you. I wish you get one soon.

    Thanks Harvey. Actually it was even more. I had put it the hanger on the car and had a bumpy ride back from the nursery and lost a few roots.
