    Default Which quinquevulnera do you like best?

    Aerides quinquevulnera has been described from the Philippines and New Guinea. The plant illustrated here is from Sibuyan island.


    On the other hand, the varieties pictured here are described only from some parts of Luzon and the Visayan islands, in the Philippines.

    Farmeri is the alba form. Flava has yellow background colour. Purpurata has the small purple-pink spots merged to create more solid pink background.

    Which best strikes your fancy?

    My fav is the quinquevulnera. I like the sclupted butter-like center.

    Cheers!

    I like the last one the best, but I wouldn't toss any of those three off the bench!

    I like the purpurata the most. It has more color accents, but the flava is also very nice. But if I have room, I keep them all. Hehe!
    Cheers. Hoa.
