    Default Vanda cristata

    This is quite a compact Vanda species which doesn't need high temperatures to grow well. The flowers have a nice fragrance. I keep it indoors the whole year round.

    Thanks Bruce. Because of the unusual lip it is used quite frequently in modern Vanda hybrids.

    Very different form for a Vanda. Love the lip.
