    Yes, Heather is correct. My philippinense is actually the variety aureum and not the albino or album variety. So, they are supposedly the lighter yellow form. I guess I would have to wait and see what and how they will turn out. The aureum and album var usually cost more than the regular philippinense, actually just a few years ago they cost a whole lot more.

    My regular phil is a giant compared to these aureum/album varieties.

    hmm, sounds like it is starting to take over the world.... it's now even found in Sydney, Australia... particularly in my backyard!!! There are nine different cultivars surviving here... and so far no flowers...

    Rence, what's your take on the difference between a philippinense and roebelenii and a laevigatum? Do you differentiate?

    Cheers

    I'm of course no expert but I like to separate the roebelenii into a distinct species too... laevigatum, at this stage I put as a horticultural variety.

    But, unfortunately, I think because of the lumpers, the true difference between a philippinense and roebelenii will disappear as they get crossed as a philippinense...

    I think so.

    But if i were you , You should try to plant more orchid species type rather than hybrids.

    It was told to us by a leading plant expert in the Philippines when i had attended a lecture series that was conducted last February, since forest destruction and over collecting is one reason "why" most orchid species continue to deplete in numbers.

    Why not try Dendrobium anosmum ?

    Hey Rence,

    I think most of my orchids are species... loads of different Paphs, Laelias, Dendrobiums, even some Catt species as well as the odd Dracula and Bifrenaria... I think somewhere in the forum is a list of my orchids...

    I don't have the Den anosmum. Do you think that will be ok in a cool growing environment? My temps in winter go down to 5 celsius outside or inside it is 12 celsius. Of course, less light inside.

    Oh, I managed to flower a Amesiella monticola recently but the flowers only lasted two weeks... first flowering so maybe it just wasn't strong enough... or maybe it was just too cold.. not sure...

    anyways, I'll also check out what Den anosmum needs and maybe add it to the list.

    Cheers
    Tim
