This LeHua primary hybrid was between the alba forms of wardii x sukhakulii. This second bloom was much larger than the first one, 13 cm vs 9 cm. I was pleasantly surprised. Almost auctioned it off last weekend as a donation to my local orchid society. Luckily I kept it to see flower. I called him Glow Stick LoL.

NS 13 cm
Petals 1.7 x 7.0 cm
Dorsal 3.5 x 5 cm

Needless to say that this is a lovely flower......and in the this year flower you may see with a close look the influence of the wardii parent too. The last year flower looked, at least in my eyes, like a straight P. sukhakulii album. This fact may sometime cause confusion.

What an interesting observation Rudolf. Yes it seems like you are correct in your assessment. I never even thought of it until you pointed it out.

And yes OP I also do prefer the parents but neither are strong plants or easy to find. I have one really exceptional wardii album I got in Dome show but alas the bud blasted. Next year then.

And thanks to all for the nice comments.
