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.

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)

The alba is fantastic! I have what I believe is a tet cross named Buddha's Gift x
Bill Freeman that looks VERY similar. Maybe not quite so eye catching, but the
star shape is lovely in green/white.
