    I have found the name of my orchid. Vanda Fuchs Ruby. I searched and searched on line. You can imagine how long this took. I can't get a picture small enough to post. Thanks to all for your welcome and assistance.

    What you have is a beautiful Vanda hybrid. It is tough to get the correct ID though.Key to blooming Vanda is healthy roots and proper light. You can provide light > 5000 fc for this Vanda and fertilize weekly with whatever you get in your area (NPK, Dynagrow, MSU). Providing them with a regular monthly dose of kelp extract is also good.
