Phalaenopsis Yaphon Lobspis × Phalaenopsis Kuntrarti Rarashati

I got this compact growing Phal from Big Leaf Orchids. It turned out alright. The color is lighter and less orange than I had hoped, but on the flip side, the lip coloration is great, it's a nice bright orange red.

The flowers are strongly scented in the morning and continue to be lightly fragrant throughout the rest of the day. The scent, however, isn't particularly pleasant. It's hard to describe, but it's pretty much what I'd expect from equestris and venosa, like unscented cleaning chemicals or something mundane like a plastic smell I guess.

I looked this up on orchidroots and apparently this cross is equal parts Phal. equestris, Phal. lobbii, Phal. tetraspis, and Phal. venosa.
