    I believe that your plant is a pure species but naturally selected and cultured in laboratory to improved its traits. Last December, my friend from Nueva Viscaya try to sold a large box of cigarette full of Renanthera philippinensis worth 1000 but I hesitated because I don't have much money to buy those and also I have only small place for plants when I was previously working in Manila. I only bought 3 pieces from them.

    yeah, that was one of the better looking plants, although im not sure if its not a hybrid, looking at the leaves, i thought they should be much longer.
    I'm kind of sure its a Philippinensis as I recall that was the label on the display during that show.

    All the pure phillippinensis I had seem have very similar leaf. Very short , big fat and rigid, kindda similar to Trachoglottis brachiata. I bought Ren. phillippinensis, but i have a suspision it might be a hybrid coz the plant looks more similar to coccinea or arachnis .

    Whatever. Makes me proud of Philippine orchids, and the legacy they leave to the modern hybrids.
