    Looks like two different clones. One set of flowers has lavendar lips. The second set of flowers has golden/yellow lips. HHMMMMMM.

    Default Phalphanatic,

    late last year I bought 30 equestris plants (they cost $2 apiece) and I realized I had not enough space.

    The picture shows inflorescence from three plants in one big plastic basket. They are all healthy; there is no problem replacing them if some disease causes an epidemic. The era of gathering equestris from the wild is long gone; my supply comes from a dealer who sources them from small growers in the Ilocos provinces.


    When the bud s opened it was a very pleasant surprise to have a spike of gold-lipped blooms.
