Comments: Like most peloric forms of this species, this plant has no pollen and is thus pollen-sterile. Although the anther is sterile, the stigma is still perfectly functional. Dorsal sepal medium pink, fading to white along the edges, lighter pink on reverse; lateral sepals noticeably wider than dorsal, same color on dorsal half as dorsal sepal, white basally on ventral side with pale pink flush apically; lateral petals resemble labellum very closely, down to the vestiges of calluses, white basally, vestigial calluses very pale yellow with light red stippling, distal end and false sidelobes flushed deep pink, fading to white at tips; labellum dark rose on midlobe, reflexed along basal edges, tipped white, sidelobes rose with darker striations internally, callus pale yellow with red speckling; column dark rose dorsally, white on apical tip, white ventrally, no pollen; overall form is typical for peloric varieties of the species, with strongly reflexed sepals and flat petals; substance typical; texture matte to slightly crystalline. Natural spread 2.50cm horizontally, 2.75cm vertically; dorsal sepal .65cm wide, 1.80cm long; lateral petals 1.05cm wide, 1.05cm long; lateral sepals .65cm wide, 1.20cm long; labellum .85cm wide, 1.25cm long.
Donor's culture notes: Culture for this species is the same as with other Phalaenopsis; temperatures of 68-85+ °F, at least 50% relative humidity, and semi-constant moisture are preferred. The flowers of this species, especially of this form, are charming. Flowering begins in April and the flexose, sometimes paniculate, raceme continues flowering sequentially for months. After flowering, P. equestris regularly forms keikis at the end of the inflorescence. This species responds well to mounting and is very forgiving.
Unique ID: MC920
(this will not change even if any part of the name should change)
