Euanthe sanderiana (Rchb. f.) Schltr.

Euanthe sanderiana (Rchb. f.) Schltr.

Although correctly known as Euanthe sanderiana, this species is still called Vanda sanderiana by many. The large (3-4 inch) flowers have contributed their flat round shape to generations of Vanda and Ascocenda hybrids. This native of the Phillipines is one of the most stunning of the Vandaceous orchids and easy to grow under warm bright conditions, although plants may get large.
