There are very few Phal Noids that I would buy today but fortunately I haven't lost interest in the species possibly because they have retained their original character and look nothing like the huge white or novelty patterned examples readily available in most shops.

This one is nothing like the Supermarket Noids (which is why I like it)

That's a good looking flower Steve, some great species Phals about. there is a forum user on here you probably have heard or know about Francis- re: Phalaenopsis and more got the site on desktop but don't know if they're still trading.
Iv'e only got a Phal tetraspis as far as species go, just the standard one not C4 or Am, G7 :lol:

Barnie.

I hope your Phal didn't hear you dismiss it as ONLY a tetraspis otherwise it may sulk and not flower for you anymore and that'll teach you ! :lol:

The Tetraspis is a little cracker in its own right, if you compare any of the specie phals to some of the sometimes huge, blousy, highly coloured, highly patterned, over-hybridised Shop available phals, then the species can look a bit modest but then that’s their appeal to me as they look more natural, so I look on the hybrids as a separate species and can appreciate their stripes, splashes and blobs of colour against the gentler subtleness of the species.

I agree there. The vast majority of my Phalaenopsis are either species or primary hybrids now. Schwerter have a great selection.

:lol: No no. Steven my dear boy, it was not a dismissal. :shock: I was alluding to the fact I have only ONE species of phal and your slant on the ubiquitous over-hybridized Noids.
I'd consider the much discussed C1 (not C4 as previously said) :doh: a Hybrid plant-as nice as it may be, but mine is a unadulterated specimen as found in the wilds of Sumatra.
I concur with with you absolutely on the fact that species have something especially tangible about them. :drool:

It shows you are obviously a man of impeccable and discerning taste.....( :? I don't know what that means but I'm sure its true)
