    Could it be ampullaceum 'semi alba' variety?? The leave sure looks like ampullaceum thou.

    This plant, definitely, is not Aerides rubescens. A. rubescens has tall, upright inflorescences that stand well above the leaves. The flowers are also a very nice pink in colour. My opinion is that it is a white form of Ascocentrum ampullaceum.

    Cholon, You mean Ascocentrum rubescens. I think it's either rubescens or christensonianum. The flower of Asc. ampullaceum look different.
    The picture shows my Asc. ampullaceum

    After I wrote my comment I went to my green house to check the shape of Ascocentrum schristensonianum. I should do it before writing. This plant is for sure not one Asc. christensonianum. Below you can see image of Asc. christensonianum (flower and habitus) and flower of Asc. rubescens. Unfortunately, I couldn't find my Asc. rubescens.
