Phalaenopsis violacea var. alba
Phalaenopsis violacea variety alba. This used to be called violace Sumatra and bellina was called violacea Borneo; however, they've been elevated to different species. As with it's bigger cousin, Phalaenopsis bellina, Phal. violacea is sweetly fragrant although both the plants and the flowers are smaller. As with Phal. bellina, Phal. violacea is also hot growing.
