It is interesting how some orchids have to travel the globe to find their identity. It is even more unusual when it happens during our generation. This monotypic genus is represented only by Christensonia vietnamica. The plants were discovered by the Czech botanist Jiri Haager during a geological expedition in southern Vietnam. The genus was created in 1993 and named after Eric Christenson in recognition for his work with Vandaceous orchids of the subtribe Aeridinae. While this species shares characteristics with both Aerides and Rhynchostylis, with the publication of Genera Orchidacearum volume 6, it is now included in the genus Vanda. Affected hybrid names are explained on this website here.. This is a lowland species found around 100m elevation and requires warm temperatures.
