    Default Orchid identification contest number 2

    This photo was taken a few minutes ago. It is endemic to the Philippines.
    All those who can identify (genus and species) shall receive a copy of 2010 Philippine Orchids calendar, shipping and handling courtesy of moi. Anywhere in the world.
    Contest ends when I post the fully opened bloom.
    Each person has one entry, only. Your immediate relatives (and your dog) not allowed another entry, because I will know from the address anyway. :-)

    hi nelson,
    this time the calendar is mine for sure! lol

    my parrot on my shoulder just whispered in my ear "brussels sprout", but since animals arent allowed in this quiz, i would go for
    "vanda merrillii".

    I think Euanthe Sanderana, vanda sanderana or waling waling by look at the nature of the spike.

    looks vandaceous to me...
    There are probably 60 species of Phals native to your wonderful country...
    My guess will be Vanda lamellata
