B.medusae

Hi Pak.

The most common form of this species over here in the UK, is the all white version with semi-transluscent petals and sepals and also with a yellow lip. Occasionally the one with a few scattered pink spots towards the base of the petals and sepals is offered for sale. Then there is a version which, from a short distance, looks very dark and muddy, this is because it has hundreds of closely packed dark spots all over the flower parts. I must say that I prefer the all white version. All three varieties can be found in Thailand Peninsular Malaya and Indonesia. I haven't heard about the second variety being confined to the state of Pehang. When my plant is in flower, I make sure that no water touches the flower parts, otherwise the flowers soon look twisted and terrible.

hot sunny day

I find that if my flowers open when we are having an overcast damp day then they will never be much good. If they happen to open on a hot sunny day all is good.

Regards wellsy
