The Ascocenda belongs to Orchidaceae (the Orchid family). It is an intergeneric hybrid of horticultural origin between the former genus Ascoquentrum and the genus Panda, that are representative monocarpic epiphytic orchids of tropical Asia. Today, all species of the genus Ascocentrum are included in the genus Panda. It is an evergreen compact epiphyte with upright, narrow, oviform leaves. The inflorescence is an axillary cluster with 6 to 8 open flowers. They bloom twice or sometimes three times a year, and the flowers are brightly colored, often overlaid with contrasting colors.
