    Default Phalaenopsis equestris var. orange

    I just love this orchid: I found out that the orange color is fading over the time at
    this variety.
    Jim Cootes thinks this one is a hybrid because of the shape of the floral segments - he sees an infusion of the natural hybrid Phalaenopsis intermedia, which is Phal. equestris crossed with Phal. aphrodite. The colour also alludes to it being a hybrid. The hybrid is back a couple of generations so this plant is probably seven-eighths or three-quarters Phal. equestris.

    Branka, a very nice species. I think, Palaenopsis equestris is a very thankful plant.

    What a beautiful bloom your equestris phal has. Be it a hybrid or species - whatever - it is stunning. I really like the hint of orange in this orchids coloring.

    cheers,
