    Looks like an encyclia ceratistes to me. Does it have a sweet smell? And long strap like leaves? If so, that's what it is. Lucky you! Betty :-)

    Sorry Betty, but it's for sure a Phalaenopsis. In the winter time, the plant is leafless in the spring time, the leaves grow again and the flowering season is usually May, June. My plant is flowering this year quite late.
    Phil. I also think, it's Pahalaenopsis braceana.

    Congrats for blooming it so nice! It's for sure not braceana. I would call it P. hainanensis.

    You are correct...( I was wrong ) Now that I see a close up of the flower, I know that it ISN"T a ceratistes. It's lovely just the same...Congradulations! Betty :-)

    I think it's a phalaenopsis stobartiana (Section : Aphyllae)



    Braceana's lip is quite different as you can see :

    Daniel,

    my plant origin from Hainan island, that I'm sure. Why not hainanensis? Do you have picture of this species?
