The big specimen sized orchid Aerides quinquevulnera or Aerides quinquevulnerum with at least thousands of flowers. Sometimes people looked down upon native orchid species for having small flowers , sometimes flowering only once a year or just ordinary ones.

The small flowers have a pleasant smell and if grown properly can be a show stopper. Lovely and very photogenic and instagramers would surely like every nook and cranny of the exhibit.
