Another smallish plant showing more of the Opsis than the Asco with flowers lasting only as long as its Asco parent rather than the Phalaenopsis (which is a shame! :( )

That is a very good looking flower Steve. As you say very little of the Vanda miniata to be seen. By the way are you going out of your way to post odd named plants. :lol:

I'm not familiar with the different traits of these types - how long do they last then? Days?
Nice colours though.

:? Errrr.......................Yes!
But don't worry Terry, no doubt the Powers That Be who seem to like re-naming plants will be calling it something else in the future? :lol:

Chris: thankfully the flowers last for a couple of weeks rather than days but because they open over weeks, the first opened buds can drop before the whole spike is open so you never get a spike with a 100% flowering, you can see the lowest node where its first flower was (now deceased :( ).

(Ignore the light dusting of cinnamon just visible on its leaves) :oops:
