Been a bit busy Ed, sometimes its a choice between spending a day in the greenhouse or going to the show...

I like the falcata, I like the houlletiana even more, had to Google it but looks like it might grow too big for my collection.
Smashing plant and colours, scented too?......a bonus !

The houlletiana has a very strong citrus scent.

Aerides seem to tolerate my coolish conditions quite well. I suppose they can get a little big, the falcata has roots going all over the conservatory brick wall, it would be tricky to keep in a pot maybe and needs humidity/decent watering.
