    This is very unusual Aerides, I got one from Indonesia, the flowers is so small and sweet.How long does the flower may last? Mine last only for short period.

    Hmmm .... Looks very much like Aerides jarckianum which is also known as Aerides Leeana.

    Or are these plants all the same?

    I'm getting confused all over again.

    Jojo, I'm also confused, I'll check the name. Aerides rubescens is even a not valid name. I've bought this plant in a nursery in Germany and this guy don't have, for sure, any orchids from Philippines. I have Aerides leeana, but the plant looks quite diffrent.

    Hi guys,

    Saccolabium rubescens Rolfe 1906 and Aerides rubescens Schltr. 1915 are the previous names of this plant, it was now reclasssify to Ascocentrum rubescens (Rolfe) P.F.Hunt 1970, an indigenous plant to Vietnam.

    Hmmmm ..... that's strange. The leaves don't even possess the characteristic(s) that is typical of most Ascocentrums. Personally, the leaves appear to me to resemble more of the Aerides with its flat leaves ..... and look at the tip of the leaves with that distinct notch which is common with the Aerides group.

    Strange .... I'm still somewhat unconvinced and skeptical. Anyway .... it's still a nice looking plant.

    After surfing the net for Ascocentrum rubescens, well it does appear the leaves of this (renamed) species is indeed flat. (see photos which I lifted from various sources on the net)

    So I take back my skepticism and doubts and have to concede that this is possibly indeed an Ascocentrum rubescens.

    Question: What then is the difference between this (Ascocentrum rubescens) and that of Aerides Leeana (aka Aerides Jarckianum)??? They both look so very much the same ????
