    So cool and beautiful.

    I have the alba form and I'm looking for the regular violet one.

    Unfortunately the white one doesn't produce flower as many as the red one.

    Actualy both smiliae and purpureum come from the same region. And from August up to now, it's the time for smiliae to bloom. Smiliae has red splash at the bottom of the flower, and it also has bigger size than purpureum. People in Indonesia name smiliae as "anggrek nanas" or "pineapple orchid" due to its shape that resembles pineapple.

    Very true.

    It seems this is a common behavior among the alba forms of species. Most have a tendency to be very finicky and difficult to flower.
