    Default a natural hybrid, Aerides leeana x quinquevulnera

    At this time, the tail end of Aerides season, I was surprised to see this plant’s blooms. I had obtained it with a bunch of other plants as Aerides quinquevulnera var flava.

    The blooms have opened, and lo and behold…instead of a quinquevulnera, it had the shape and morphology of an Aerides leeana, but the colors are that of a quinquevulnera. I propose that it is a natural hybrid, in effect Aerides leeana x quinquevulnera.

    Would you agree?

    The last two photos are that of Aerides leeana, and Aerides quinquevulnera, for comparison.

    Very nice photos!

    I am not too sure about Aerides leeana, but the guessed natural hybrid looks to be a color form of Aerides leeana... in the flower's morphology, I would see nothing that came from Aerides quinquevulnera... the nectarial gland (spur), as I assume, would not be the same as Aerides leeana...

    If anything, I think the vegetation would prove more differences than the flower... the serrated tip of the leaves, study the patterns of the species and compare/contrast with the guessed natural hybrid.

    Nonetheless, these are great looking flowers!

    I think the spots make the bloom. Very nice and beautiful photos.

    I think I agree with you. In similar vein, Jim Cootes has identified one of my plants as Dendrobium profusum, even though it has pink spots and green markings, while the usual plant has almost pure light yellow blooms.
