Vanda always makes me think of gigantic plants with thick roots hanging everywhere. lol
Does the taxonomy break the genus Vanda up into subgenuses and sections, as is done with Phalaenopsis for example? It would seem logical.

Ascofinetia Moonlight Firefly is a Vanda Male

From a cultural perspective, the knowledgeable grower knows that individual plants have individual requirements; having the generic name change is irrelevant. Sedirea is phalaenopsis, neofinetia is vanda, laelia is cattleya, etc.

At one time, ALL orchids were epidendrums!
