    Red face Phalaenopsis phillipinensis

    Purchased this as Phal stuartiana, but when it bloomed, the flowers were white, not pink. I knew it had to be something different. Turns out, it is a more rare plant, found only on the isle of Luzon, in the Phillipines. Beautifully marked leaves, and easy to grow.. I love the flat roots, too..

    Quite rare in cultivation, yes. Even in its native country.

    Congrats, and a even better surprise i'd say!
    Btw, Phal schilleriana is the pinkish one you were looking for.
