    Beautiful!!! I prefer this to the coloured form. It's so pristine that surely even dust would just slip off

    cheers

    Nice pictures -With or without photoshop!

    Where did you get that plant? A local dealer told us during a lecture series that he is selling this kind of orchid for quite a small fortune......
    he even had a sample plant.(A sort of show and tell )

    I will just PM you on how much he quoted ! And everyone in the audience were shocked !!!! He said that it is 1 in 1,000,000 chances in finding a Aeridres quinquevulnera var farmeri. So he is justified in selling that high..... (note: This guy is famous in the field of orchid hobbyist in the Philippines)

    Default Thank you, guys.

    Rence,

    I guess I am lucky for having these plants, lol...

    Fortunately, (or un-?) some people in America think of Aerides as "pretend-Angrecoids", hence I guess that will not create a demand for these graceful and exteremely fragrant plants.

    I think I have a very good idea of who you are talking about. I am a POS member too.

    I guess each to his own then, and it helps that I know the value of what I have. Coming soon, photos of Aerides leeana, aka jarckiana, and Aerides lawrenciae.

    WOW!! I have never seen that type of Aerides before. It looks so pure and soft.
