Vanda garayi and vanda ampullacea are gorgeous little miniatures with an interesting back story.

Did you know that they used to classified as "ascocentrums?" Then, in 2012, taxonomists determined that they were really vandas after all. Boom! A whole category of plants reorganized. There's an article about it here if you're interested.

Dr. Motes wrote articles about then ascocentrum garayi and then ascocentrum ampullaceum for the American Orchid Society, which are available for free on our website by clicking here (garayi) and here (ampullacea) explaining why they deserve a spot in everyone's collection.
