The most popular red Vanda is Robert's Delight but there are hundreds more that look similar. There is really no way to pinpoint it.

$5.00 for a nice Vanda is a great deal. I would have bought it as well and looked for more.

In the first photo under the flower - Its hard to miss , Thai disease ! Thats why you DO NOT buy $5.00 orchids !!!! This ones in the orchid hospital @ my home . Use - Zyban and paint the lesions with nail polish .

Do not use nail polish on your orchids. Use Bayer and I agree with Jim; you got a deal. Very pretty Vanda. I've never known an orchid grower who uses Zyban. I'll ask around and if I find someone I'll let you know. Have you sent a photo to Martin Motes for confirmation? He is the last word on the topic.

How big are the flowers?

I'd say the flowers are 21/4 to 2 1/2 inches and still blooming . I think it might be Ascocenda Suksamran Beauty "Red " ( Ascda YipSum x Wah x V. Gordon Dillon ) If it is it would be my first time identifying a non species . I'm just no good at it ! I woke up to bad weather this morning and a beautiful Den. crumenatum in bloom for about the third time this year - I ran down in my PJ's before the rain to get some shots - Take a look . Thank You to all for your help . Regards , Lisa
