Thanks you for all of warm comments.
@pheli: ya, I heart about the white Retusa more and never see it before. The white retuse very very difficult to found and very expensive. If you had one you become to an millionaire in my country.

Several yerars ago, I saw some white retusa that imported from your country. The white long clusters were very attractive, but however they were quite expensive. There were also white Aerides odorata here, but like white retusa, the plants are very few and not easily available.

Very pretty and nice presentation too... Seems like the markings are similar to native retusa in Indonesia. I love the fragrance which quite close to cilantro/parsley.

In here var alba is also quite expensive, the price is about the same as Rhy gigantea or mericlone Vanda hybrid.

Aerides odorata is also quite common in Java island, Indonesia. This species is commonly found living as epiphyte on Tamarindus indica tree. I am growing one for 9 months now with no media but not giving any flower yet though the roots are growing healthy.

Rai, those spikes and flowers are stunning. I might just have to add this species to my wish list. Very nicely done!
