SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Vandeae, SUBTRIBE Sarcanthinae. Euanthe is a monotypic genus with the species name sanderiana and is found in the Phillipines. It is distinguished from Vandas by it's 2 parted lip with it's balooning hypochile and it's full evenly shaped sepals and petals. This genus is warm growing and appreciates bright light and plenty of water and fertilizer year round with no rest. This plant is crossed with Vandas and Ascoscendas to produce many awarded hybrids. Notice the color pattern change from the dorsal sepal and petals from the lower sepals a pattern that is common in many hybrids and this genus is the genetic reason why.
