It really looks like Staurochilus ionosmus rather than S. lunchuensis.

Vanda lamellata var boxallii

Because of erratic weather, there are only 12 spikes this year. Last year there were more than 20. Still it is a sight to behold the classic boxallii variant. Very fragrant.

Vanda lamellata

This plant surprised me with eight spikes. The floral characteristics are in between the remediosae and boxallii variants. Very fragrant.

Phalaenopsis equestris var rosea (Ilocos)

In the Philippines, this variety comes from extreme northern Luzon. In contrast to the usual P. equestris, they have bright pink floral parts, which makes them very attractive. The plants are smaller than the usual P. equestris.

Flickingeria fimbriata - many times ignored!

Probably because it is very common, can grow like a weed, and its blooms last only for a day. However, when it does bloom like this plant with multiple flowers, it can be a sight to behold.
