I feel like I don't share enough stuff about the plants I have here, including the orchids.

This is a Korean variety I got from DavesGardenObsession on Etsy. It has both sumi ('black ink') and fukurin (marginal variegation). You can kind of see the sumi in the photos and almost the fukurin. Also this variety is derived from an Amami type, which basically means it's from a plant that was in the wild on the Amami Islands, the main place Neofinetia/Vanda falcata grow naturally, so it should have bigger flowers. First picture is from the seller, the rest are ones I took. I need to find a better way to take pictures...

The best I can find as to what 'Ogwan' (오관) refers to is something in Buddhism. Something with crowns or 5 points.
