    The flowers are pure white. Sometimes I have difficulty with lighting for my photographs.

    I also remember that one of them is fragrant and the other isn't. As to which one is fragrant, I forget!

    Amesiella minor - The flower is similar to Amesiella philippinensis and its flower size is half of Amesiella philippinensis. Leaves are shorter, thinner and slender.

    These plants are difficult to propagate and the only possible way would be is to grow from seeds or through tissue culture. Growing seeds and have them tissue culture in orchid laboratory could help save these plants from overcollection in the Philippine-Luzon and Mindoro forests.
