This is a discussion on Phalaenopsis fasciata, philippines within the Phalaenopsis, Oncidium, & Intergenerics IN BLOOM forums, part of the Orchid Photography category; hi, another fasciata opened, this one is smaller and not as colorful on the column ...
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.
Just a nice one
really beautiful! Are you sure, that it is fasciata and not reichenbachiana?
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.
It looks 'dangerous' in that side shot.. Beautiful phal.
Nice fasciata with very good form.
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.
Hurray for this Philippine native! Beautiful!
Aren't we just proud of our heritage Ron?
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:
-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
-it is not fully open like Phalaenopsis mariae
-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.
