Phalaenopsis amabilis (Irian Jaya type) sibling cross
species - Irian Jaya (West Papua, Indonesia), also No. Australia, Papua & New Guinea, Philippines and New Britain
Registered in 1825, this is the national flower of Indonesia. Since its discovery around 1825, Phalaenopsis amabilis has been used in primary hybrids almost 500 times and has been a part of over 33,000 hybrids. This is a part of hybridizing history!
Fragrant flowers up to 4" across are produced on stem up to 36" long in Spring and Summer. This plant can take light levels a bit brighter than most and may develop a slight reddish cast as a result. It is a warm grower (65+ - 85 degrees night to day) that needs year-round watering and fertilizing (see ours in the "Supplies" section).
Our plants are 10-12" in size; near blooming.
NOTE: These are not the standard white Phalaenopsis hybrids found in many places these days - lovely in their own way, they are the inspiration behind those hybrids.
NEAR FLOWERING SIZE, BUT NOT CURRENTLY IN SPIKE, BUD OR FLOWER!
