Phalaenopsis hybrids

Sometimes called moth or moon orchids, the Phalaenopsis genus is widespread in Southeast Asia ( Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and Philippines). Several thousand hybrids have been produced from the Phalaenopsis parentage with some combined with other genera like Aerides, Renanthera or Vanda. Because of the extensive hybridisation, the colour varieties are multitudinous except blue.
