Phalaenopsis aphrodite subsp formosana

£19.00 (Sold out)

Phalaenopsis aphrodite is one of the large white flowered species of Phalaenopsis, and it has been regularly confused with Phalaenopsis amabilis because both have very similar flowers. However, Phalaenopsis aphrodite is easily recognisable by the 4 teeth on the posterior part of the callus. The green apple leaves can grow to 25 cm, and their 7.5 cm flowers are borne in long, pendent, sometimes branched inflorescences.

Phalaenopsis aphrodite can be found in northern Philippines and southeastern Taiwan, from sea level up to 300 metres of elevation. Subspecies formosana is endemic to Taiwan.

Plants provided as flowering sized in a 9 cm pot.
