Looks like a hybrid Vanda. Hard to tell which hybrid.

Kinda looks like Vanda Robert's Delight. Not sure. It is definitely a hybrid. It has Vanda sanderiana in it and Vanda coerulea. If there are other contributing genetics in the plant, I'm not sure what they may be.

If you're thinking of getting the living plant to grow, this one grows quite large.

It is intermediate to warm growing, leaning more towards being a warm grower (65 F - 90 F).

It grows under bright indirect light.

The roots like quite a bit of humid air. If the air is too arid, (low in humidity), the roots will shrivel.

Definitely a Vanda hybrid. Unlikely Roberts Delight, which is rarely spotted.

There are a large number of spotted hybrids, so impossible to tell which one.
