A small, compact vadaceous orchid with beautiful green-ochre petals and pink-lipped flowers.

It’s not every day that I get to see orchids that are on my wish list, so coming across Vandachostylis Luke Thai at a recent orchid show is a bit of a treat. This one’s a nice specimen with many keikis from what I can assume is one lead plant.
Multiple green-ochre flowers with soft pink lips sit beautifully on upright stems. Couldn’t get close enough to detect any fragrance, though.
This hybrid was previously known as Perreiraara Luke Thai and combines the wonderful traits of aerides, vanda and rhynchostylis.
