    I think Amey is correct about it not being schilleriana - nonetheless it is an imposing plant with a fantastic display. Congrats Jordan.

    This is definitely not Phal. schilleriana, judging from the leaves and the tip of the lips. Phal. schilleriana has mottled leaves and the under-side of the leaves is purple in colour. The lip is always anchor-shaped.

    Congratulations dude! That is an awesome number of buds! I dont grow moth orchids well..Ive killed the last 4 I had..I tend to water indiscriminately and carelessly! But extremely healthy looking plant by the look of the leaves!

    This Phalaenopsis deserves nothing but praise. What ever its origins or lack of known parentage, it has been adopted by you and is therefore a Jordan type orchid first and foremost. That spike is incredible. AL

    Yes i know it is not schilleriana, I have checked out what the plant looks like and the blooms. It is clearly obvious it is not so.
