    Well, I'd say it is a smaller one but not a mini, still a young plant, the bigger leaf is about 11 cm.

    I usually don't care for the majority of Phalaenopsis and then I see another 'exception' like this. This is indeed a beauty! Good going Branka.

    I agree with you Al. I only have a handful of Phals and all but one are species. The one noid hybrid that I do have is only in my collection because it's such a vigorous grower. I don't think I could kill it if I tried.

    What a gorgeous flower, and the pictures are so beautiful. This is still on my wish list, and I don't know how long I'm going to resist....
    It will be great if you could show us a picture of the whole plant too, as the leaves of this species are such a delight

    You're right: Phalaenopsis shcilleriana has dark green, mottled silver grey leaves.
