    Default Phal violacea var sumatrana



    First flowering for this plant on a mature spike , has flowered previously but flowers very small.
    3 spikes on the plant now will be specially if i can get all 3 flowering at the same time.
    Scent is exceptionally strong & very pleasant , brother described it as a spicy , floral candy.

    Very nice violacea, Steve. Bravo
    It is not "sumatrana" but "Sumatra" (Phal. violacea Sumatra type)
