    Default Aerides odorata

    I love this species, because of fragrancy and shape of the flowers and I have many of them. This plant is quite unique. The petals are, more green then yellow. Strange. For me it's not an alba form of Aer. odorata.
    Do somebody has such clone?

    First odorata I have seen without any purple or pink on it. I too love the flower shape.

    It's a xanthic form, Mietek. It's an albino form dominated by xanthic pigments (green and yellow are such pigments). That's the only Aerides odorata I know with such condition.

    Yes Mietek ... I guess you're one lucky person to be able to get hold of that rare form. Take good care of it and let it grow to specimen size to conserve what's left of this rare form.

    Cheers!
