    Today I visit an orchid show and find another one beautiful P. formosana. I guess it is over 30 years old. This one is really gorgeous!

    My goodness. That is just magnificent!!

    Until now, I wasn't so much a fan of white orchids, but I think I'm changing my mind. This particular one is just beautiful, and one I'd be happy to have.

    That second photo is stunning, what a huge plant and I have never seen so many flowers on an orchid before , it is really spectacular, I do adore the white ones though.

    In the past P. formosana had won many gold prizes in the word exhibitions in 1952, 1952 and 1956. I have never seen these old pitures, if you have, pls tell me. As the elder said, there were hunderds of flowers on the mount. Probably as you see as above.
    This was one of the reasons to be almost extinction in the wild.
