Re: phalaenopsis malipoensis

Hello Francis, I am certainly no expert on orchids my knowledge is that of the beginner that went just a little further than the hybrid phalaenopsis you buy at the convenience store https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-RgfA0vOC_6k/UO84sltb3XI/AAAAAAAACwM/TQBla2ylCCU/s720/Capture%2520phalaenopsis%2520....
