    very nice! we have quite a few members with this Phalaenopsis species, however I think this might be the first albinistic variety shown.

    love the shape of the labellum and how the only ther colour the yellow, really draws you into the middle of the flower.

    Beautiful blooms, what medium do you grow it in? An orchid mix or semi hydroponic?

    Default Equestris alba ,substratum

    Hello,
    thanx for looking my picture and here my cultivation for it :

    This Orchid is in a transparent pot,so I can see the roots and when I must watering.It´s hanging in my window ,East -South side.Shade at noontime.
    All my Orchids are in a selfmade mix with bark,coconut,vermiculite ,a little bit sphagnum,paring of cedarnuts and styrofoam,or they are mounted.
    I often spraying under the leaves with fertilizerwater.The roots only 4-6 weeks with it.In the autumn-wintertime only rainwater.So she is doing well .

    Each one have a concept of his own and i´m very interested for recipes from other orchidgrowers.
