    Default Phalaenopsis speciosa

    Another beautiful collection from my garden I always confused as so many colors come out from the above species, so far I got purple, red and this one I don't know is it red ? Need your opinion.

    Phalaenopsis speciosa has different colour varieties nowadays thanks to intensive breeding. Colours ranging from fully red, purple or brown, or white paired with one other colour on same flower. Maybe someday there will be blue as well? But I still don't know how to differentiate this to Phal. tetraspis.

    Shape and color are great, now pure red but certainly a form of a darker reddish color!

    I wish too if blue appear in the market for the sure the prize would be amazing. Many info from the other's group said they are come from the same species, they are all from Nicobar Island, Andaman. India.
    Some flowers are much blotched with deep rosy-purple, showing very little white, others have bars of rosy-purple with some white spaces between." (Reichenbach, 1882;Higgins, 2013). The difference between P. speciosa and P. tetraspis seems to be very negligible. ...
