    Ron I can see why this plant is such a favorite. That gray center is small but sharp!, and yes it really does look very pearl like. I am always a sucker for orange and yellow orchids especially when they have the substance and waxy look these do. Are these difficult to raise?, and may I ask what their requirements are?

    hi al,
    those are very easy, from shady to sunny spots, in pots or soil, also mounted possible, if you can keep it moist.

    Cool orchid, Ron. I like the leaves too. Nan called it right: exquisite. Is it native to Leyte?

    The plant reminds me of the evergreen Calanthes, but not the flowers of course.

    thanks tami,
    its very well spread over the philippines.

    @geoff,
    true, like a mini calanthe, although most of the times the leaves are really wavy.

    i think it is rare and almost impossible to get grey in any flower, let alone in an orchid as fanastich as this! SEHR GUT!
