It is some kind of Vanda or Ascocenda, but I couldn't tell which one.

I agree, it's in the Vanda family.

I grow them inside a heated house, tarev. I just have to water the mounted ones daily in the morning since vanda roots need to dry quickly. More importantly these need lots of sun. This flower reminds me of Ascovandoritis Prapin which I have but hasn't bloomed. http://www.pacharaorchidintertrade.com/product.php?Product_I...
