This was Neofinetia falcata but has recently been absorbed within Vanda. If there's one thing I know about vandaceous orchids it is that they require great heat (or so I thought). However, this is a popular species in Japan where they grow it outside as an epiphyte and I am going through a phase of testing possible orchids for their toughness in my conditions.
So, this may be a sacrificial offering but I was determined to try it out and Spicesotic Plants were able to offer a suitable candidate at a suitable price.
