Ascocentrum orchids are beautiful Vanda relatives. They are generally considered miniature orchids, as they look a lot like Vandas, except smaller and brightly colored, with quite dense, erect flower stems. They are often hybridized with Vandas; the hybrids genus is called Ascocenda.

Water regularly and maintain high humidity and good air circulation.

With the publication of Genera Orchidacearum volume 6, all Ascocentrum species are now included in the genus Vanda.
