One of my favourite Phalaenopsis species, tetraspis has so many color forms from white, red, bicolor, magenta, blue (indigo) and brown (coffee). I want them all lol.

This is the coffee color form. Larger flowers than I thought. From seedling based. Looks like from indigo blue line due to the indigo spot on the lip, behind the fuzzy tip.

I have several tets and tet crosses, but I've never seen one like this. It's a bit of an
oddball for a Phal. Love the star shape of these Tets.

I just researched this form. It is officially called fm. brunneola (reference to brown color).

Nice! There were few tetraspis varieties when I was collecting phal species. … it does look like the usual color of coffee flavored ice cream, which I do enjoy (though not real coffee very much)
