They are both gorgeous, each in their way, Philippe! The large one exceedingly so! 😋

Do you know the parentage or provenience of the li'l (though one of them not so small) beauties?

Kind regards, Jens

Two beauties and I love your display ware. Do you keep them in there always, for root cooling? I like the little one...the whole point of thaianum to me is its perfect littleness!

Interesting. I've bloomed two so far from my breeding that have been scented, but they smell like Phalaenopsis bellina.

Really like bellina?

Bellina's smell like fruit loops with geraniol (64%) and linalool (32%) as the main components.

I must pay attention to the thaianums from now on since all that I have seen and judged (around 50) were non-scented. I wonder if they were a specific ecotype or expression of a recessive gene?

Not sure. I mated the two scented ones, so we'll see. Time to return the thread to Philippe :).

And if thaianum is a true brachipetalum, small différent leaves, pouch with spots like emersonii ans scented...may be a parvisapalum...not a niveum form...
