    Always so fond to see this white phalaenopsis in bloom. What is its name?

    I'm afraid you're never going to know. There are simply too many white hybrids out there to be able to identify them with certainty.

    Nisa, if this was a wild collected plant then it may be Phalaenopsis amabilis which is native to Indonesia. However, if it was purchased from a store then Ray would be correct. If this plant was in someones collection in North America then I would agree 100% with Ray's statement.

    I think Ray is correct Kelly. This one was purchased from a nursery.
    I had a Phalaenopsis amabilis years ago. Unfortunately it didn't survive.
    Thanks Ray and Kelly
