    Great plant - beautiful flowers - and look at those roots! That's a happy orchid. Kudos to you for the job well done. Thanks also to Wally for sharing his knowledge.

    Jenn, you plant is without a doubt Pteroceras unguiculatum- actually many people mistake them for a Phalaenopsis (in fact in the late 1800's it was even called Phalaenopsis ruckeri), but the longer stems of this Pteroceras betrays its identity. And as what you already have noticed, the blooms last only around 10 am but are very sweetly fragrant. Expect another batch of flowers as the rachis elongates further.
    Thanks Wally! At least got an ID for my plant now. And yes, there is another batch of buds forming now!

    Thank you evryone! I'm now happy with this plant. I'd say "Thank you" to the vendor who cheated me! hohoho!!! coz I think I can never have this plant even if I search for it, but for the phal amabilis it's quite available but only for a super high price.
