    Bought as just P mannii , so the flowers were a surprise. They are pretty well identical to plants and flowers I have seen in the wild, and had identified as mannii, except for the colour. So the var flava bit is my interpretatrion of what this formn ought to be called.

    Comments ?

    btw, flowers much smaller than my Yunnan form I posted a few weeks ago.

    Like this one a lot but don't know a lot about the species Phal. There are a couple of other threads of the flava form. One is almost identical to your's and the other isn't even close.
