    Default Phalaenopsis equestris

    I've been looking for a while, but can't find the exact name of this type of equestris. Can anyone help me with this?

    I really love this phal. It's been blooming for months now and this was its last bloom. Now it already has produced five more buds, so i hope in a week i can enjoy its flowers again.

    I agree with Nekletka, that is not an equestris. I love the lovely blue color though.

    Lovely Dorit!!! That color is really nice, I'd be hard pressed to pass that one up if I saw it in the store, that's for sure!!! It sounds like it likes you too!
