    The plant in question is indeed Phal. stuartiana var. nobilis and not a hybrid. These plants used to be rare in the past but they have been available as seedlings and young plants from european nurseries for the last 2 years. Some of them are reaching maturity now and therefore you will see them popping up at shows and as pictures on the net more frequently from now on. They are quite stunning, obviously the most attractive trait is the sulphur yellow colour of the flowers, but also the lovely mottled foliage and the many-flowered racemes that are normal characteristics of Phal. stuartiana. The flowers are fairly small compared to those of line-bred species such as Phal. amabilis, but they will hopefully be used to open up new lines of breeding for yellow phalaenopsis.

    Even if this Phal. stuartiana var. nobilis is supposed to be more common in Europe than anywhere, I just can't find it anymore.. The only nursery here I found carrying it no more has it. I was not on time to buy it, if I knew it was so rare I'd hurried up!
    Does this smell too? I know Phal. stuartiana in general smells.

    This species' buds "stalls" on me for two years running. The blooms open halfway and then dry up. My favorite flower color is yellow, so I'm going to stick with it until I can successfully bloom it.

    Phalaenopsis stuartiana var. nobilis was published in 1881, concurrently with original publication of the species, so it isn't exactly a recent discovery. But it was re-described as Phalaenopsis stuartiana forma nobilis in 2001, sometime after some representatives were found after many years of not being widely known, so forma is the current designation. This is unusually good in color and form, but there have been several generations of selective breeding since 2001.

    I don't like to get too technical about this. I just want to enjoy its beauty. Wow!
