Default Rhynchostylis gigantea

Actually, it implies that I must have been drinking...

It's "vandaceous," which means that it is closely related to vandas,
ascocentrums and the like, capable of interbreeding with them.

Bear with me here ray, I'm a newbie :-)

This species occurs on the Indochinese peninsula as a medium sized,
monopodial, warm to hot growing, vandanaceous epiphyte

What does vandanaceous imply? If it doesn't imply it's a vanda, does
it imply it looks and grows a lot like a vanda?
