It is the markings on the petals that give Phalaenopsis hieroglyphica its name. The petals vary in colour on this Phalaenopsis species from a pale yellow and white, the contrasting markings also vary from a range of pinks to yellows, always transverse on the petals. Phalaenopsis hieroglyphica var. alba is white with yellow markings. This fascinating orchid is from the Philippines and nearby areas, the flowers are fragrant, and it is a fairly easy to grow species. It has an interesting habit of being able to reshoot from the old flower stems, so these are not pruned away unless obviously dead.
