Phalaenopsis violacea var. alba

Once Phalaenopsis violacea begins to bloom, it is seldom out of bloom, since the flower spikes continue to lengthen and produce flowers, usually a few at a time.  The species is from Southeast Asia and is very fragrant, especially when it is warm.  My plant is still quite small but already has two flower spikes.

    1. Thanks, Elisabete. This is almost the only Phalaenopsis I grow and it is a windowsill plant. It won't take the cool temepratures of the other orchids.

  2. Hi, Ron! Very interesting, I didn't know this feature. It's all that I always wanted, an orchid that is constantly blooming! And it's a very beautiful Phalaenopsis, congratulations!

    1. Thanks for your kind comments, Sergio. These are not difficult to come by and you should try one. They are warm growing and should do well for you.
