This plant has bloomed four or five times before, but this is its first time with a two-flowered inflorescence. The inflorescence structure is odd--instead of the second flower arching above the first, the extension of the inflorescence is completely lax and dangles straight down.

Here it is blooming a few years ago with one flower:

Congrats!
Never saw a two-flowered vietnamense, and it has a good colour, too!

Great flowers! Mine are in bud now. I can never figure out how my friend Sam Tsui manages to bloom vietnamense with a 3" leafspan, mine have to be bigger than that and even then don't always bloom...

Good job!
I have one that isn’t doing good enough to flower. Can’t really figure out what’s up. Small plant, grew well, got rot, suckered out another baby plant, it grew fast and then stopped growing.
