    Well, I can't tell?
    I bought these plants from the annual Philippine Horticulture Show.
    A friend of mine sold these plants to me and I was amazed with the different forms of this orchid and I didn't hesitate to purchase these as one of my collections.
    There was a yellow form but its too late for me to bought them because we were going back home.
    Maybe next year, we'll be back for the International show for Philippine Horticulture and we'll be bringing plants came from our region and that are no where to find, Rare plants.

    PhilsDC I'm curious as to what "region" you are referring to? Do you come from the Mindanao region? (just like me?) Yes, we do have a lot of rare and exotic forms over there nowhere to be found. It appears that Luzon region has somewhat become so over-harvested by orchid and plant poachers and illegal logging activities.

    @Randy
    Your lucky out there because you can bought this plant any time in Manila. And as for me, I'm not able to travel by this time maybe next year. Maybe I can bring also plants by next show.

    @Jojo
    I'm from Mindanao, I'm referring to some rare species (Aroids, Orchids, Palms, Pteridophytes, Nepenthes, Rhododendron, Hoya, Dischidia, Medinilla, etc..) found in the forested areas. It is true that Luzon is already overcollected and destroyed its indigenous flora and fauna. In Mindanao, there is strict implementation of laws regarding of entering a Natural Park like Mount Kitanglad and Mount Apo and others prohibiting of harvesting and collecting indigenous flora and fauna.

    @Ron
    These varieties came from Leyte, you can have these anytime. My Flava form is totally a Phalaenopsis lueddemanniana. The lip of Phalaenopsis hieroglyphica is wide and triangular as with Phalaenopsis reichenbachiana. The midlobe of this plant is extended pointed.

    correct derek,
    its just your pix is a little small and blurry, but the markings just reminded me on hieroghlyphica.
    i purchased a bunch of lueddemanniana a couple of months ago, also to see the differnent variations, only one is in spike now.
    thanks for info!
