I have a small crush on this densely-flowered intergeneric vanda hybrid. Tagged as Rhynchorides (now known as Perreiraara) Bangkok Sunset, this orange-hued orchid with a dash of peach was hard to miss.

But I had to wonder about its name, though. Its colour and lip-shape didn’t resemble the Perreiraara Bangkok Sunsets I’ve seen. I suspect it might have been a hybrid between Bangkok Sunset and some other vanda.

Perreiraara Bangkok Sunset – maybe

Still, the dubious labeling didn’t damper its spotlight at a local orchid show. Call it Rhynchorides Bangkok Sunset, Perreiraara Bangkok Sunset, or whatever. This small, compact, bright beauty looked superbly fit for any tropical collection.

Mighty brighty bunch!
