    This Phalaenopis is most likely a species, but P. leuddemanniana and P. hieroglyphica always have trichomes (hairs) on the lip and this is without them, so my guess would be a pale form of P. amboinense, which branches and blooms successively with this form of petals and sepals. Anyone else?

    In fact there are some trichomes on the lip, not many and difficult to see but they are there. So the question is, could it be Phalaenopsis leuddemanniana with such a few trichomes?

    If there are trichomes present, even if only a few, it is most likely lueddemanniana (please excuse the typo above; I'm a terrible typist).

    It doesn't matter. I make many typing mistakes too, specially in english.

    This is P. amboinense var. common (pale form).

    That's definitely P. leuddemanniana for sure.
