I don't think they were big plants either. Mine was small. According to the pics sent from India the spikes were long like this one and branched. Mine did for 3 years but not this year. He did suggest it cound be a variety of maculosa called schroedereae. I cannot find any reference to this.
    If they were legally imported and this big a quantity, then they definitely cannot be A. maculosa. Most nurseries that export Indian orchids are based in the Nort-east India and sell wild collected plants, there are no nurseries in India propogating Indian species by breeding or tissue culture (Something, I will be soon starting LOL). A maculosa is endemic to the western ghats. So if these orchids came from Sikkim, Darjeeling or anyother Northestern states you can be sure it is A. rosea or feildingii. The info at the IOSPE is also wrong, the plants do no flower in spring or early summer but during late summer June and July once the temperatures have cooled by the monsson rains. How can we rectify the information at IOSPE, I also have some nice photos and information that I can give.

    Amey, thank you for the info. I've put in a lot of hours researching this plant & I can't find anything other than Aer. rosea ( fieldingii ) as being the name. There are a number of hybrids but not close enough to be it.
    I await your further info, thanks again, Roy.

    Thanks Mietek and Geoff ! I will email him all the info and pictures I have.
    @ Roy just let me know if anyone you know will be travelling to Australia from India, I can make arrangements to send you an A. maculosa.

    Amey, I've been searching the net and reading a heap of species books like Sanders, Hawkes & Orchid Digest & come up with atleast three versions of what Aer. maculosa is supposed to look like. The majority of publications show & describe maculosa as per the plant I posted. Two versions I found on the net are totally different to each other and mine. If you have a pic of your maculosa, flower & plant it would be most appreciated. I'm totally confused & so is the original seller.
    I would love a piece of the plant you describe but anyone coming into Aust' with it would be fined heavily and the plant destroyed. Everything !!!!!! is xrayed and the searched if the slightest thing of interest shows up. Thats for personal luggage and Post.

    Hi Roy, here are the links to my Aerides maculosa (A. maculosum)
    http://www.rv-orchidworks.com/orchid...ing-again.html

    http://www.rv-orchidworks.com/orchid...maculosum.html

    You will notice that the flowers have a darker, much broader lip and also the petals are much rounded and not pointy. Also I have more than 200 A. maculosa from 3 different locations and none have these long inflorescences, they will produce branching inflorecences.

    Amey, I e-mailed some of your pics to the nursery I bought my maculosa/um from. I received a reply back with every excuse as to why he saw NO difference !
    I think he needs glasses.
    As a follow up, I measured my plants leaves and spike just now. The leaves range from 16 inches ( 410mm ) to 18 inches ( 460mm ) & the spike is 24 inches ( 610mm ) long. ( was 28 inches ( 710mm ) last year.
    With my searches, I don't recall any Aerides close to this but I may have missed it.
    Is this a normal healthy rosea, a hybrid ( natural or otherwise ) or what ???
    I have no idea now.

    Roy, I am pretty sure that your plant is Aerides rosea. The flowers are quite similar to another Aerides, A. multiflorum/a, but the multiflora is a smaller plant like maculosa and the placement of flowers on the inflorescence is quite dense. Rosea on the other hand matches all other qualifications, like long inflorescence medium to large growth habit, and most importantly the geographical location from where all Indian orchid exports originate.
