    I don't know that I have seen this bright yellow incorporated into a phalaenopsis before. Between the the yellow color and those spots this is really quite extraordinary. AL

    Stunning - but is it a stuartiana or a hybrid of it? Everything about it looks stuartiana but the colour.

    Either this could be a hybrid ormaybe it could have been genetically altered or enhanced ..... I've read somewhere that Taiwan is very good in the field of bio-genetic engineering. I remember reading somewhere that they even came out with a bioluminiscent orchid where they got the gene/dna responsible for bioluminiscence in sea plankton (or was that a jellyfish???) and they spliced it on the gene of a developing protocorm of a dendrobium orchid. The result was a glow-in-the dark orchid. They even were the first to experiment and produce a bioluminscent freswater zebra danio fish (I think in the U.S. they call this a glo-fish and though it is sold by a particular company, it is banned in some states - the fish though are all sterile on purpose to prevent possible breeding and could later pose to be a biogenetic disaster if ever they escaped into the rivers and streams). The experiment though successful got the attention of hobbbyists but got criticized and attacked by the internatonal scientific community because it raised ethical questions and risks in dabbling with genetics and the implications it had on health and humankind. What next ???? A bioluminiscent cat??? where is the dividing line between plant and animal then ???? or the dangers of accidentally producing some super bacteria that might be immune to even the strongest of our antibiotics .... can be scary or beneficial depending on how bio-engineering is used.

    Hahahaha! However, it'll cost you almost 100K US$ because if I am not mistaken, I read that luminous dendrobium plant was sold (or auctioned) off by the Taiwanese geneticist (for charity). I don't even remember the name of the geneticist. He experimented on the bioluminscence as a novelty and to see if it was possible to get the gene of a sea creature and splice it with a plant .... and he succeeded! Only drawback was that the scientific community got worried about the implications it had.

    I do not know what are you talking about, have you never seen yellow stuartiana var nobilis? This was not found until recent years ...

    Not speaking for anyone else, Peter -- but no I haven't. I would remember such a thing. Very nice yellow and something I wouldn't mind owning. The only nobilis I have seen were not a bright solid yellow.
