    It has not had a temperature drop from me - although I agree that is usually helpful with phals.But then, it does not get high temperatures at any time - a range of say 18-27 I think

    Nicely grown but this is a hybrid with phal equestris. The lip shape definitely comes from equestris, not from phal (doritis) pulcherrima. If so, this plant would be the alba version of Phal (formerly Doritaenopsis) Purple Gem.

    Do you have Chiba Masaaki's book "Phalaenopsis Species" published in 2002 by the Japanese Society - "Phal Species Publishing Society" ? That illustrates several pages of variants of pulcherima, all considered to be true species and not hybrids and it is clear that the lip shape is very variable - some narrow, some pinched etc, and my plant is certainly in that range. Of course, a natural hybrid is impossible here since the ranges of the two species you mention are quite distinct.
    In other words, you may be right, but you may be wrong. I will leave my label in place.

    That's very nice Geoff. I love the fact that you see them growing in the wild in those conditions. Cool!
