Hey all,
Happy to join the forum! I've been growing many different types of orchids for about 8 years now. I've had a few mini phals as they were always cute little reliable bloomers that didn't take up much space to enjoy. However, the past year or so I've been adding to my collection of Phals with more species and some of the more "higher end" hybrids.

I found this forum looking up information on a newly purchased Phalaenopsis gigantea, and figured I could learn a lot from you all while trying to get more serious about growing Phals really well.

Here's one of my favorite small phals, I'm not sure what hybrid it is, but it consistently is my best bloomer and I'm a sucker for white flowers:

Thanks for looking!

Hi Melody,
Welcome. We are happy to have you here.

Your white flower could be Phalaenopsis aphrodite subsp formosana.

Peter

Thanks Peter! I always figured it was a hybrid, as the blooms look "bred" compared to any naturally white flowered Phals, but now that I look at photos, it's a possibility? Either way, it just grows so darn well I keep it, despite moving on to caring about having named orchids now.

Phalaenopsis aphrodite subsp formosana has been perfected over time that ones cloned are superior grower. That said, Phalaenopsis aphrodite is easier to grow (more resistant to disease) than Phalaenopsis amabilis.
