    Default Phalaenopsis fasciata, philippines

    hi,
    another fasciata opened, this one is smaller and not as colorful on the column and labellum, but neat round petals, and a slight husky scent.

    cheers!

    thanks martin,
    yes, a 100% sure. i did a thorough research on it and discussed it with jim cootes over days....

    p. reichenbachiana has a wider and triangular labellum with toothed edges, also the midlobe isnt that prominent, instead it has smaller ridges.

    unfortunately, there is so many mislabeled p.reichenbachiana in the net, and it gets very confusing.

    @zain,
    thanks!

    Nice plants. My Phalaenopsis reichenbachiana is sick. The leaves were burn out to the sun and wind. This is a disaster for us orchid growers having drought.

    Phalaenopsis fasciata is found Samar, Leyte and Mindanao while Phalaenopsis reichenbachiana is endemic to Mindanao. There was confusion between this two species.

    These are the characteristics of my plant:
    Labellum
    -regularly triangular arcuate, flat and it has hairy like Phalaenopsis pallens or Phalaenopsis hieroglyphica.
    Petals and Sepals
    -color of petals and sepals are light yellow
    -stripes are thinner, sometimes variable can be confused with Phalaenopsis fasciata
    -mostly semi-round
    -it is not fully open like Phalaenopsis mariae
    Fragrance
    -strong, sweet, citrus fragrance

    Those what I have observed during blooming.

    I'll post back when the plant is back in bloom and also fully recovered.
