    Default Phal. amabilies varieties

    These are 2 varieties of P. amabilies growing in my garden. The first one is from Tenom, Sabah and the other (as informed by the vendor) just as local Sabah variety. The first one is quite large both in plant size and also bloom. The bloom on the larger ones is around 4 inches and the smaller ones is half that size. Grown side by side under 100% shade.

    both very nice! my favorit is the yellow lip!
    a couple years ago i got one from sabah, and it was perfumed, not strongly, but definitively perfumed (and fragrance was noticeable only a fews days after the flowers open, just like schill). did you notice a fragrance?

    They're both beautiful but I prefer the one with more yellow on the lip. Very nice!

    Sorry I don't recall any but then my nose is not very sensitive to light perfume. Maybe I will try to smell it next time. Thanks for looking and commenting .

    These are actually 2nd generations plants. Both mothers has died due to rot and mite attack at almost the same time. The one with yellow lips produced 1 keiki before it died and the smaller one produced 3 keikis. I would say they are around 2 to 3 years old. Thanks for looking and commenting .
